When I started my happy 4th of July-2015 post

I didn’t know I was going to be showing you all of my patriotic patterns.

When I saw the cute little Betsy Ross seamstress on the post card it reminded me of my patriotic patterns.

So, one by one I thought of each pattern & added it to the post.

It was fun remembering them all.

I had no idea I had so many.

After I published the post I remembered I had even more!


“Freedom Basket” was my very first published pattern.

I still love that cute patriotic children’s print.

I feel bad forgetting my very first pattern!


“Stars & Stripes” is one of my quick & easy

Quilt-as-you-go, lap quilt patterns.

They say the memory is the first thing to go…

and I don’t remember what’s after that.

I hope you get to see lots of fireworks tonight.

If not, perhaps you can sew some of your own.

Just keep sewing.


4thofJulyWhether it’s a patriotic project or not,

today & always I hope you get to sew!

I just happen to have a few patriotic designs to whet your appetite.
