Happy Independence Day

Let's celebrate, remembering ~ an excerpt from The Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,
that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights,
 that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

I've been busily searching all week for patriotic quilts to share ~
A salute to the red, white and blue flags and quilts.

Patriotic Quilt Tutorial


  1. Great job of finding them. I have a kit to make a patriotic wall hanging. I need to get it done before another July 4th passes.

    1. The older I become the more I understand why I should do it today. Go for it Liz.....before another 4th of the month passes you by.

  2. Great finds. This was a reminder to me that I saved my husband's several patriotic shirts. Think I'll put one of these on my "ToDo" list in coming year. Thanks for posting these and quote to remind us all of signifcance of this day. Happy 4th to all,

    1. I would love a peek at those shirts. Fabric from our clothing makes the best memory quilts.


Thanks so much for leaving a comment...We love hearing from you!
