Independence Day!

Happy July 4th to everyone in the USA!!!

This seems to be the time of year when the red, white and blue is displayed the most! I've seen quite a few beautiful patriotic quilts displayed throughout blogland... always makes me want to pull out some red, white and blue fabric and stitch one up for my home... but, I'm always at least 3 seasons (and 3 years) behind in my stitching... lol!

A little vignette in the front entry of my home...


...always poor lighting in my house, which is why I rarely takes pics indoors... so, let's go outside in the driveway and get a progress pic of the scrappy rail fence quilt I've been working on...


Each block is a 9-patch (of sorts).... the progress so far is two rows of 5 blocks. My goal is to make this 6 or 7 rows of 5 blocks, so that it fits a twin bed.

Sunny and hot here in central NJ... a nice, long weekend of picnics, fireworks, sewing, relaxing and air conditioning! :-)

Until next time...stay healthy & keep on smiling!
