InstructionsI referenced a basic rail fence pattern from a book of American quilts, but I changed the binding technique. Instead of the traditional route, I used Red Pepper Quilts tutorial for "A Quilt Without Binding": http://www.redpepperquilts.com/2011/09/quilt-without-binding-tutorial.html

What was your inspiration?
I wanted to make a quilt for my partner for our second wedding anniversary. I'm from the US and she is British, so I wanted to reflect that in a quilt for her--hence the red, "white" and blue theme, stars for the US, crowns for Britian, and the anchors for our relationship. She was delighted to receive it.
