Tuck’s American Flag Afghan

My son Tucker asked me to do him an afghan. At the time he was into the American Flag. We found him a pattern on allfreecrafts.com and I tweaked it. What I did was make the blue panel first. I then made the red and white stripes that are next to it. This way I did not have to change colors in the middle of each row. I then attached the two blocks with a whip stitch. After they were connected, I added the red and white rows to go all the way across the flag. I only did 13 stars for two reasons. 1) Tucker liked the idea of the Betsy Ross flag with the stars in a circle. 2) I really was not looking forward to the idea of making 50 stars. So we have an afghan he is very proud of.
