Happy Fourth of July!

Searching through the folders of photos on my computer, I found three quilts that are Fourth of July appropriate. The one above is still a flimsy and not yet quilted. it is destined to be donated later this year as part of my guild's QOV project.

This quilt is also not quilted in the photo, but has been quilted since the photo was taken. It was gifted to a WWII veteran last September when Kevin the Quilter was on hand to do the honors. The pattern, "Strip Twist", is one of Bonnie Hunter's free patterns.

The LeMoyne Star is my favorite. It is completely finished after waiting in the time out box for several years. It is a pattern by Alex Anderson and it had to wait for completion until my piecing skills advanced to the level that I could tackle Y seams without embarrassing myself.

I hope that you can find a brass band concert, fireworks display, or just a group of friends to hang out with this holiday weekend. At some point, I hope you take a few minutes to reflect on the freedoms we enjoy as citizens of this great country. Happy Fourth, everyone!


  1. have a happy 4th july, such a shame here in the UK we do not seem to make a celebration of anything but Christmas. Other countries have a Bank holiday for our Queen`ss birthday but not here! Lovely selection of quilts

  2. Happy Fourth! That Bonnie Hunter pattern is really effective, isn't it? And the LeMoyne stars look very good too. Enjoy your weekend!

  3. What wonderful and festive quilts! I haven't made too many patriotic quilts personally, besides QOVs of course! Hope to see you soon!
