Yankee Doodle


About this Quilt

quilt-yankee-doodle-flatThe Storm at Sea pattern gets an update in this clever design by quilter Bea Lee. This traditional quilt pattern makes this American flag look like it is waving. With so much motion in the design, it’s hard to believe that it is completely made up of squares and rectangles in easy-to-piece units. The pattern is listed as an intermediate design, but a confident beginner can make these paper pieced blocks and simple stitch and flip blocks. Bea made her quilt in patriotic colors using a combination of Sold-ish by Kimberly Einmo and Soho Solids, both by Timeless Treasures, but you can make this pattern using batiks or tone-on-tone prints as well.
