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.
