Hello Quilty Friends!
Another Happy Thursday to you!
I hope you all had a wonderful and safe 4th of July week end — how fun that the actual July 4th was on Monday. I bet a lot of you had a 3 day week end. Sew, what did you do for the holiday?
And I’d like to add a belated Happy Canada Day for our friends in Canada! How did you celebrate?
Celebrating the 4th of July for me is usually family, food, and fireworks in no particular order. I personally saw fireworks 3 times — 2 were live and 1 was a live stream of Boom over the Bay in Erie, PA. I love watching fireworks, although I am not a fan of the big booms themselves. I saw a lot of new fireworks this past week end, including hearts and stars as well as some awesome color combinations. Did you know that the Chinese invented fireworks thousands of years ago?
I even tried to capture a few photos of the amazing fireworks display in Sheakleyville, PA.
I even managed to start a new quilt project. Psst…….it’s red, white, and blue……and batik! Stay tuned for more on this project down the road.
Have you ever thought about creating a quilt that looks like fireworks? I do every time I see fireworks, but that’s as far as it ever goes. Maybe this year will be different and I’ll give it a try. Who knows?
NEW July VRD Patterns
Speaking of fireworks, the new July VRD patterns are out! Here’s my new table runner pattern for July, Firecracker:
Isn’t it fun? AND it goes together really really fast. You can order the pattern HERE. Or you can order a kit which includes the pattern HERE. Please keep in mind I don’t know how long the kit will be available so get yours now.
But wait! There’s MORE! (I just love saying that — it makes me giggle, although you might be rolling your eyes…)
One of the VRD folks came up with this super fun variation:
POPSICLES! How fun is this? And clever?? You can order the Firecracker Popsicles kit HERE. Again, I have no idea how long the kit will last, so get don’t wait to order yours.
And finally, here are the rest of the NEW patterns for July:
Aren’t they great? You can order all 5 cards for one low price HERE.
And these are the links to the kits (which include the pattern as well as the fabrics for the top and binding). Remember, there is no way to know how long the kits will last, so get yours now:
Dainty Machines — Please note the kit for Dainty Machines makes a 32″ x 32″ quilt. Super cute, may I add! This would be perfect in your sewing room or as a gift for your fav quilting buddy.
Well, that’s it for this week.
Until next Thursday —
Sew. Laugh. Repeat.
