5. Heroic Stars Quilt ePattern (landauerpub.com exclusive)
Make patriotic Dresden Plate quilt blocks using Penny Haren’s technique. This quilt was inspired by Penny’s father:
“My father, William Winfield Vaughn, dropped out of high school at 16 to support the war effort by working in the steel mills in Canton, Ohio. He enlisted as soon as he turned 18. He instilled in us the value of education and regretted not graduating from high school. In his words, ‘Our generation weren’t heroes, we just did what we had to do.’ But, in this daughter’s eyes, he is my hero.”
