Happy Birthday America!

How fitting that I finished quilting this wallhanging yesterday just in time for the Fourth of July. This patriotic number will become a raffle quilt by the Northland Needlers at their upcoming quilt show. You can find out more about their show here.

I quilted a twirling feather in the friendship stars and used a variety of continuous curves in the four patches and triangles. The blue sashings got a chubby rick rack. The batting was Hobbs 80/20 and thread was Glide in maroon and navy.

I hope everyone has a fun and relaxing Independence Day! I plan on taking the "relaxing" part real serious. Dave is going to be on barbeque duty while the boys will be busy blowing things up. Maybe I will get in a little sewing machine time!


  1. I am so glad to see you back on here! Now, we want to see your award winning quilts, too! :D

  2. Thanks. I have to sew the border on one more "have to" then that is next on my list.
