US Flag Paper Pieced Fabric Postcard

Greetings, Quilter Friends!

Thank you very much for participating in the effort to gather fabric postcards and send them to the troops in the Middle East. We know the men and women will be touched and most pleased by our efforts.

On the following pages you will find pictures of the process for making the US Flag Paper Pieced Postcard using the pattern in this package. Sorry, I didn't have time to give you complete instructions, but like they say, "A picture is worth a thousand words."

In the cases where the picture doesn't tell the story, I have included a comment or two. I hope that is helpful.

When you have finished your fabric postcard(s), please place them in an envelope and mail them to us at: How to Quilt 9080 Murray Drive La Mesa, CA 91942

Also, enclose a picture of yourself, if you would like that posted on the website with the picture of your fabric postcard.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call (619) 697-6667 or fax (619) 303-3339 or email [email protected] We are here to help in any way we can.

Please your family, friends, quilting buddies, people on the street, whoever your meet about this project. The more fabric postcards we get, the more soldiers will receive them. Let's make a huge impact across the globe!

If you have ideas for getting the word out, please let us know, and we'll do everything we can to follow up or send materials.

Happy Quilting!

Line up the strips on the sewing line

You could sew the stripes from the back. It's a little difficult to see the lines, but it might be a little easier to sew.

Continue to add stripes until you have all of the short stripes attached

Place the star section on top of the stripes

Sew the star section to the stripes

Fold open the star section

Place the first long stripe, right sides together

Sew the second long stripe and fold down

Continue to sew stripes until the are all in place

Tear the paper away from the back

All of the paper is torn off

Measure a piece of lightweight interfacing and the fabric that will be the back of your postcard

Press the interfacing to the backing fabric

Press the top

Measure the back fabric

Trim the edges of the flag top to make them even on all sides

Your flag top and back are all the same size and edges are trimmed

I used double fold bias tape ­ store bought. Sew the tape until you reach ¼" away from the corner. Remove the quilt top from your machine and fold the bias tape up at a 45° angle as shown above. Note: I began at the center of the bottom of the postcard. And I folded the starting end over by ¼" to make a nice overlap. You will see in the picture below.

Fold down the corner to begin sewing the next side. Continue sewing and turning until all 4 sides are done.

This is the end. Sew new piece on top of the first bias tape you sewed.

Fold the bias tape over to the front of the fabric postcard and pin well. You will be sewing from front to back. I changed the color of my top thread to blue to match the top, and left the bottom thread white, since my back is white.

Finished!

I left the back completely blank for my message.
