Independence Day

Today we in the United States celebrate our independence from England. I wonder about all this. Can patriotism morph into nationalism to easily?

This day certainly brings back memories. And I am an American, happy to be one.

Quilts are an American tradition, especially scrappy quilts. This one is about 72 inches square with wool batting and a plain white back. One of a few UFO's that I am trying to finish.

This one makes me happy. Happy day to you!


  1. Beautiful quilt. And nationalism - well, a fine line. But the U.S. certainly doesn't cut itself off from other countries, and I just don't see that happening. A nice, responsible place to live. Happy 4th!

  2. Your quilt makes me happy too, Martha! Very cheerful and beautifully done.

  3. What joy to work with vivid colors! We who choose more subdued colors for garment sewing can still enjoy the lift of vivid colors when we make quilts.
