Freedom Flight Mini Quilt

With June just around the corner, it is time to show some patriotic love for the freedom we enjoy.  Stars and stripes on display is a sweet way to show respect for our country. At only 6" x 12" in size, the "Freedom Flight" mini quilt was quickly assembled using my favorite products by ThermOWeb. 

"Freedom Flight"

These are my favorite go-to products from ThermOWeb:

Ironing Heat n Bond Light Weight Non-Woven Interfacing to the wrong side of fabric used in applique blocks can add stability and make stitching small pieces easier.

Once you cut out your designs, an Oliso iron makes the job of applying it to fabric a breeze! Place the shiny side down and press each area about 6 seconds.

Using Aurifil thread to stitch around the edges of your applique is a great way to show off those designs.

Adding Stitch n Sew High Loft Fleece to the middle of your mini quilt gives it just the right amount of loft.

The quilt holder is made by Ackfeld Manufacturing and measures 6" x 12".
You can find it on their website HERE.

  1. Cute little birdie mini quilt, Carol! I like the gold you incorporated with the red, white, and blue. And that striped binding--love that! You use stripes a lot--I have to start thinking about them for binding since stripes look so neat that way.

  2. This is such an adorable mini quilt! And different from the norm. The birdie bringing the star to add to the stripes is so sweet. You know I LOVE that binding, ha! A great nod to our freedom and independence.

  3. So cute!!

  6. Oh that is just the sweetest, it would look great on a door too!

  7. So cute and lovely. And the bird is so fun. As I am from Sweden I would use other colours and replace the star with a flower. Thank you for the pattern.
