Happy 4th of July!

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!

This week bas been crazy busy and to be honest I didn't think I would have anything to show today. I did manage to rephotograph some quilts and get up to date on my Etsy account. At least one thing got crossed off my summer to do list!


My poor patriotic quilt didn't become so patriotic this year. I cut the fabric on Monday then frantically found time to get at least the blocks done. Here are the cut stacks ready to make their way through the sewing machine.


Needless to say I got the blocks finished, not so bad for a weeks work. Maybe by next week I can show you a Happy 14th of July this quilt? Maybe ... 


I love everything red, white, and blue and this quilt might become one of my favorites! What is everyone else up to on this day off (for my American friends!)?  I am off to order some backing for this one :) 

Sew long for now, 
Patch & Chels

  1. Lovely blocks, and I definitely look forward to seeing how they finish out! I am about to go sit down to sew for a few hours before prepping to have friends over this evening. I hope you have a great day!

  3. The blocks are just perfect. They are going to make an adorable quilt. And don't sweat it. Red, white, and blue are classy colors year round :)

  4. Great blocks I had high hopes for today, but just couldn't get in gear. But sometimes it is good to just rest.

  5. Wow, you've had a productive week! I especially love your use of the Heather Ross strawberry fabric in the block with the mismatched (on purpose!) star points. It feels so summery here.

  6. It will be Bastille Day on 14 July, and the French flag is also red, white and blue. You can be multicultural!

  8. 14th of July quilts are just fine! I figure your quilt could be like when you buy clothes on clearance; it's just a tiny bit too late to use them in the full season, but then next year, you pull them out and thing, "This is awesome, and I didn't even have to rush around to find it." So, next 4th of July, you can pull this out and it's ready to go for fireworks.
