Fireworks!

Since I have been bitten by the quilting bug again, I am determined to sew!!! During Spring Break I told my kids that "I" am having Spring Break and I am going to sew! I made two baby quilts for other people that week and started a quilt that I’m actually going to keep! Fun!

I love patriotic quilts (some of them anyway) and I am crazy-in-love-with America and her history. I have one patriotic quilt at the long-arm quilter right now, (one I started 4 years ago and am finally finishing!) and another patriotic quilt that is on my UFO list and I will hopefully finish it soon. (There's some hand-stitching on it that is a bit intimidating to me...)

Since getting bitten by the quilting bug again, I've been dreaming about and waking up with visions of quilts in my head! Thereby came this quilt idea for Fireworks.

And this is one of things I love best about quilts…

This is my hubby reading a bedtime story to my daughter. : )

Ahhhhhh, there’s nothing like reading a good book with your kids while snuggling up under a nice quilt.

“Tickle Kingdom” by Robert D. Harris is one of our favorites!

I didn't know you were such an accomplished quilter! (Although it doesn't surprise me a bit.) What a beautiful piece of art. I am truly impressed by you, again!

Myra said...

Thanks Sarah. You are so kind. : )

LOVE IT! So how did the quilting go? It is gorgeous! !! I'm so sorry about the vertigo :( xoxo

The quilting went fine, I'm getting more used to it. However, about 1/3 of the way into it the motion of it all got me super dizzy again and I had to go lay down. Yuk! I told my head I wasn't going to do this anymore (I'm sure that helped ;) So later I was able to finish it. I love completion!
