With that goal in mind, I have chosen a patriotic pattern by Bonnie Hunter, called the Courthouse Square. She also has a similar pattern called Irish Courthouse that you might be interested in. I like both of them!
I ‘shopped’ my own stash, and cut out all of the parts. Then I layered nine blocks so that I could piece them all together rather than piecing one block at a time.
I pieced the blocks from the center to the outside.
A close up look at one of the completed blocks:
All nine completed blocks:
And that is where they sit (or hang, actually…on the design wall); waiting for me to decide if I want to set them the same as in the pattern, or do something else. I need to decide the size that I want.
