Happy 4th of July

One of my favorite holidays is the 4th of July.  It always takes me back to my grandmothers’ farm and my childhood memories.  Cook-outs, watermelon, her secret homemade vanilla ice cream and of course, fireworks.  Hopefully, we can entice you with some ideas to make your Fourth of July a memorable one. 

Who can resist this cute little apron featuring Uncle Sam decked out in red, white and blue?  Make a table runner of stars and flags to hang from a table or stitch a wall hanging.  From Art•to•Heart “Easy Does It Patriotic”.  

Relax on your backporch and enjoy a stitchery project from Blueberry Backroads,  http://www.blueberrybackroads.blogspot.com/  “I Love America”.

Clothworks offers “America”.  Find a free pattern on their website.  www.clothworks.com .  We have the fabrics available on our website @ www.okquiltworks.com

Several of us fell in love with the Minick and Simpson’s fabric line, Bar Harbor from Moda.  The fabric feels soft, almost as if freshly dried on an outdoor clothesline, the colors definetly sing red, white and blue.  We fell in love with the quilt “Cabin on the Shore” and simply could not wait to make the model for the shop.  Kits will be available for purchase.
