WAVE THE FLAG


I LOVE patriotic quilts, and so I have to post this quilt for the Fourth of July. It is a Pat Sloan design. My friend, Joan, and I worked together to select fabrics from both our stashes to create two of these quilts. One for each of us. We finished it in time for the 4th in 2004. It was such a fun project to do with a friend. It is a calendar quilt and has a block with a flag for each month, except for the eagle block. I do think that is the cutest eagle I have ever seen! Terry Clothier Thompson also had a nice one on Simply Quilts this morning. You can check their web site if you missed it. Maybe I will try that one too. My problem, of course, is that I want to make EVERYTHING! Have a happy holiday!

I like the applique - I also like the setting. Thanks for sharing it. Happy Independence Day.

If I appliqued, I might try the watermelon block, that one's my favorite from that quilt. :)

Happy 4th!

Great quilt. I really like the Pat Sloan designs. And your applique looks so good. Is it all hand applique?

very nicely done, Marcie. The calendar aspect is very clever of the designer.

I really like the star quilt on your deck. Can you tell me where you found this pattern?
