I love my country, and I am so grateful to those who stand in harm’s way to protect my freedoms.
Thank you, veterans, military and servicemembers–my words are small but my gratitude is very, very big.
Please enjoy this free foundation paper piecing block pattern to aid in expressing your patriotism. This is not a traditionally pieced block, so there are no fabric measurements or cutting instructions. Although it could be pieced traditionally, keeping the proportions of our flag accurate was important to me, and that didn’t translate into numbers that are easily cuttable. :) SO, if you’ve never used the foundation paper piecing technique, here’s a quick tutorial I wrote a few years ago on Foundation Paper Piecing.
You can download the printable block pattern here.

What are the measurements for each piece? Strips?
