Click HERE to download and print the Four Flags Foundation Pattern.

**You will want to Download the file and then print the .pdf file.  When you print, make sure that scaling is turned off enabling the document to print at 100%  Take a moment to measure.  The bottom solid line on section F should measure 3-3/4".  If you print directly from the Google Docs screen you might come out with a slightly smaller sized block.**

Please click to add your link once you've finished your block.  I'd love to see it!!

The quilt blocks on barns are interesting. I was unable to find the pattern for block #41 for the BOW.
