Independence Day – Thank you!!

Happy 4th of July everyone!

Every country has its traditions, and for the good old USA, it’s all about the 4th of July! Picnics with family and friends, sparklers and fireworks at night, it’s all about celebrating! Celebrating our freedom! And nothing says freedom to us like our flag!  Our beautiful red, white and blue flag!

Doesn’t she make you feel patriotic (and darn lucky)???  Does me!!

Being a quilter I decided to make my own version of the American Flag – 12 little mini-flags sewed up into one wall hanging!!  Very easy to do – each individual flag is paper-pieced on a sky-blue background using a variety of reds, whites, and blues and sewn into a 12-patch.  The flags are bordered with blue star fabric and has two matching fabric hangers.  The wall hanging has a place of honor all year long and reminds me every day to appreciate our lives and always be thankful for everything being a US Citizen guarantees us!

Thank you so much to all the men and women, current and past (including my own brothers, husband, son and daughter-in-law) who have served our country in the Armed Services!  Our freedom came at a heavy price paid by so many.  I pray for the safety of those currently serving!
