HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!!!!





This post is just my way of wishing you a very HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!! This is a quilt I made several years ago and have shown on this blog before. I never get tired of admiring our flag, and this version is one I love to show. The stripes were machine pieced, the stars hand-appliqued and the whole is hand-quilted. I also love the fabric on the back and especially enjoyed writing the entire Gettysburg Address for the label on the back. So, I hope you enjoy the holiday weekend, celebrate with those you love and wave the flag safely!! take care out there, pat

PS. Once again, I've not been able to put the photos in order. I hope you enjoy the quilt anyway! And, if you click on the photos...especially the full view of the quilt and the written label, you can see all the details. ENJOY!

That is a real treasure, Pat. Is that your handwriting on the lable? Not many people these days write like that.

The flag is exquisite - your talent shines again. When I received your letter I admired your penmanship and I am so happy you wrote on the flag, we need reminders of our wonderful country the USA.

Pat- what a fitting tribute to this National holiday- your quilts are exceptional. Is there anything you can't make? Can we call you Betsy Ross? Love it- this should be in a museum!

Your quilted American Flag with the 13 stars...what color did you use for the back? I have an unfinished flag and I did not know what color to use for the back.

Thanks,
