Happy 4th of July! (And Blog Tour Info)


Happy 4th of July! This little wall-hanging and pillows were some of my earliest quilting projects ever--made more than 15 years ago (pillows and wallhangings were patterns from "Little Quilts").  Although the buttonhole stitches are a little off, and the borders are a little wavy,  I love the reminder these small projects give of my quilting journey.

And the Open Gate Quilts blog tour starts this week. This blog tour is a great opportunity to learn about Monique's Fit to be Quarter ruler (I mentioned it on a recent post--it's a wonderful tool to have)!  There will also be free projects, recipes, and oh, yes, some free rulers.

Here is the line-up:

July 4th - Open Gate - Monique, http://opengatequilts.blogspot.com/
July 5th - Stashmaster - Lisa - http://stashmaster.typepad.com/

The very first quilted project I ever made is a wall hanging that is red white and blue. So imperfect but it's how my quilting addiction began and I love it.
