Happy Fourth of July

I can't say that I'm very good at decorating for holidays.  However, I do have a favorite quilt that shows my patriotic colors!





I made this about 4 yrs ago with a group of friends.  We each contributed some large red/white squares and blue/white strips to sew our own blocks.  I think the original quilt was called the Convent Quilt.  We saw it as a kit at a quilt store but I didn't buy it.  I was sorry for a long time until my friends came up with the idea to make our own kits and divide them up.  

It is one of my favorite quilts...maybe the simplicity makes it so appealing.  Not sure.

Hope you have a great holiday!

  1. Your red, white, and blue quilt has such a soft and cuddly look to it. Looks aged and I like that. I have been seeing patriotic quilts all over Blogland, Facebook, and Instagram today. Very inspiring. Thanks for sharing.

  2. It is a wonderful quilt. Love the simplicity of it. Either the 9-Patch squares are huge or these are the smallest quilted fan ever. Maybe it's the colors ... whatever ... I love it. Happy Independence Day. ;^)

  4. Love the colours and fabric choices of the quilt. The dark blue really makes it standing out. I think that lots of times colour and fabric choices are more important than the pattern. Lovely!!

  9. I think simple quilts are often the most appealing. This is a beauty, Randy. I have a simple R/W/B quilt top that I keep telling myself I NEED to get quilted--but the quilting elves have not worked on it yet. :)

  10. I remember the Convent Quilt from an old American Patchwork and Quilting magazine. They said that a group of nuns received a gift of shirting fabrics etc. from someone and they decided to learn how to quilt using those fabrics, and this was the quilt they made. Yours came out great. (I like it better than the original in the magazine!)
