Happy Independence Day!

I know, I should be working on my Scrap Squad quilt. But I want to show you some of the red, white, and blue quilts I've made over the past few years. Out of  more than 100 quilts, not many are RWB!

First, though, here's a photo of My Little Sailor the day he enlisted in the Navy. December 14, 2011:

They're back on patrol in the Western Pacific:

And now for some quilts! First up, "American Valor" from Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting magazine:

It's promised, but not bound and delivered yet! (I haven't forgotten, Casey!)

This is my most recent RWB quilt, "Hexagon Gardens," which we'll be working on at Jelly Roll Party this Friday:

Another recent finish, "Stars from Strips" by Cozy Quilts:

"Lover's Lane," a Fat Quarter Fun project from 2012:

Here is a photo of my friend Jane with me from the 2011 Jelly Roll Race at quilt retreat. She won first place, and I took second:

Fair winds and following seas on this Independence Day to all the ships at sea!

  1. My son joined the Navy last December and is currently at boot camp. I love to quilt so I will now start my collection of red white and blue quilts! Thanks for sharing your RWB! They are beautiful!

    1. Candy, best wishes to your son as he undertakes his Navy career. Have you found the site? Lots of rumors and innuendo, but also some good information!

  2. I really like your American Valor quilt. You have reminded me to share my red white blue quilt sometime.

    1. Irene, I think next holiday (Labor Day!) I'll ask everyone to send me photos of their RWB quilts and host a parade! What do you think?

  3. Nice post of quilts for your Independence Day but now back to work on that Scrap Squad quilt missy! Don't make me tell you again! (hehehe!)

  4. Happy Independence Day. I love red, white and blue quilts. I guess they're sort of Australian too? Our flag is those colours. Your son looks like you. I hope he is safe at sea.
