We are celebrating Memorial Day here at Suzy Quilts by showing you six different examples of red, white, and blue quilt patterns and why they work so well in this color scheme. Lilo Whitener-Fey, one of the founders of Modern Service Quilts, and owner of Trace Creek Quilting, has made three of the beautiful quilts seen here.

Remember last week when I said it was the best week of the Starling sew along? Well I totally lied. THIS is hands down the best week. Why? Because Starling is the chef's kiss perfect quilt pattern to use when chain piecing a quilt together for speed, efficiency, and an all around good time!
It's the BEST week, folks! Well, I think so anything. In Week 5 of the Starling sew along we assemble our blocks. At this point we have all of the star parts and now we get to see them come together.
Hey Quiltketeers, and welcome to Week 4 of the Starling quilt sew along! Is it me or is this sew along flying by? Maybe I've just got aeronautics on the brain because my husband made me watch the new Top Gun movie with him last night and this week we're sewing flying geese!
Don't be a square — be a square IN a square! In Week 3 of the Starling sew along we encourage square-like behavior while sewing, pressing, and trimming these units. So lace up your tidy white sneakers, tuck in your shirt, and let's get to work!
Ah, the invisible zipper. At first glance, it looks intimidating and daunting. But we're here to bust that myth — not only are they NOT hard to install, you can easily sew an invisible zipper into a pillow in just 4 easy steps thanks to this tutorial!
Hey you! Are you ready to rock, roll, and cut? I sure am because I LOVE when cutting is simple and straight forward. In Week 2 of the Starling sew along we cut our fabric. And guess what! It's all squares!!
Picture this: you've just completed a gorgeous Starling quilt. You lay it across your bed and breathe out a sigh of satisfaction. But wait — it seems like something is missing. What could it be? The answer is simple: coordinating quilted shams!
Quiltketeers, here we are once again with another opportunity to sew together. It may not feel like we're actually sewing together because you live there and I live here, but I love that for a short period of time you and I are synchronizing our calendars, putting other projects on pause, and choosing to create something beautiful.
