Patriotic Points Wall Hanging

Fabrics in reds, creams, and blues turn simple blocks into patriotic patterns that are stunning when combined into a Americana wall hanging. An impactful star block in the center provides a shining focal point. Fabrics are from Linda Ludovico’s Stonehenge: Stars & Stripes collection for Northcott.

Assemble Double Four-Patch Blocks


1. Sew together a red print 2-1⁄2x42" strip and a tan eagle print 2-1⁄2x42" strip to make strip set D (Diagram 9). Press seam toward tan eagle print. Cut strip set into sixteen 2-1⁄2"-wide D segments.

2. Using cream print instead of tan eagle print, repeat Step 1 to make eight 2-1⁄2"-wide E segments.

3. Referring to Diagram 10, join a D segment and an E segment to make a red Four-Patch unit. Press seam in one direction. The unit should be 4-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make eight red Four-Patch units total. (Set aside remaining D segments for border.)

4. Join a tan eagle print 2-1⁄2x42" strip and a blue star print 2-1⁄2x42" strip to make strip set F (Diagram 11). Press seam toward blue star print. Cut strip set into sixteen 2-1⁄2"-wide F segments.

5. Using cream print instead of tan eagle print, repeat Step 4 to make sixteen 2-1⁄2"-wide G segments.

6. Sew together an F segment and a G segment to make a blue Four-Patch unit (Diagram 12). Press seam in one direction. The unit should be 4-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 16 blue Four-Patch units total.

7. Referring to Diagram 13, sew together two red Four-Patch units and two cream star print 4-1⁄2" squares in pairs. Press seams toward squares. Join pairs to make a red Double Four-Patch block. Press seam in one direction. The block should be 8-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make four red Double Four-Patch blocks total.

8. Referring to Diagram 14, sew together two blue Four-Patch units, a cream print 4-1⁄2" square, and a tan eagle print 4-1⁄2" square in pairs. Press seams toward squares. Join pairs to make a blue Double Four-Patch block. Press seam in one direction. The block should be 8-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make eight blue Double Four-Patch blocks total.
