I find a lot of my inspiration for quilts by searching eBay for vintage or antique quilts. This simple quilt caught my eye and I thought it would make a great quilt for a veteran in RWB.
Quilt size = 56×76
- Alternate 4 inch finished squares with 4 inch finished half square triangles (both should be 4.5 inches with seam allowances)
- Set blocks 11 across and 16 rows down
- Inner border cut 2.5 inches
- Outer border cut 4.5 inches
I’d go scrappy and use lots of different reds, whites, and blues.
If you wanted a borderless quilt like the inspiration one, you could just add 3 rows of blocks to the width and length setting them 14 rows across and 19 rows down to get a quilt the same size.
