It's July- Hip Hip Hooray!

Every year I post photos of my patriotic quilts and some decor. Independence Day in USA is my favorite holiday. 

This is what you see upon opening my front door. And if you are wondering about the quilt it was a quilt along that Randy and I did last year. Find it HERE.
 This was a quilt I made from my first ever block swap in 1997.
 Inspired by an antique string quilt. I only wish I would have made it larger. (2009)
Primitive 4 block eagle quilt. (2003)

Whenever I post this one it gets the most raves. My friend, Kat made that for me and it is tradition that it hangs here. It fits perfectly.

Here's another little collection that goes along with my Americana home.

  11. Red, white, and blue couldn't look any better together than they do in your home. The quilt you and Randy designed together is still in my UFO pile and hopefully will find its way to the done stack some time this year. I have all the ingredients--just need to get stitching.
    Have a safe holiday and weekend.

  12. Every quilt is awesome. I especially like the string quilt with the scalloped appliquéd border. The curves and the strings just seem to compliment each other. But your eagle quilt is so perfect. It's adding more temptation to my quilting list.
