Soon to be the 4th

Right after Memorial Day, is my second favorite holiday, the Fourth of July!  I have to admit I am a sucker for everything Patriotic.  It also got me thinking.  Why don't I have a patriotic quilt to go with this great holiday?  Seems silly being a quilter and all.


After this epiphany of wisdom, I started pulling a variety of red, white, and blues to use for the top.  I have made this JULY STAR BLOCK many other times by Cluck Cluck Sew.  I am also going to incorporate some FIREWORKS blocks by Thimble Blossoms, whats the fourth without fireworks?



So far I have a dream, some fabric, and a plan.  I should be good to go now!  Off to the cutting mat I go.

Sew long for now,

  3. That's so funny...I just pulled my 4th of July fabrics last night too!!! Love your choices, and Fireworks is going to be so cute. I think I'm going to do the Summer Sparkle quilt with Fresh Lemon Quilts. Can't wait to see yours:)

  6. I have ALWAYS wanted a 4th of July quilt too! Not sure why. I just love everything patriotic I guess, and a quilt just seems to be a must. It is on my bucket list for sure. I am off to check out your links now, but looking at your fabric choices, it will be a stun!
