Happy July 4th America!

I've had Thimble Blossom's Flag Quilt on my quilting bucket list for a couple of years now. To scratch that itch to make something new without starting another big project, I whipped up one flag block and made it into a mini quilt to hang on my vintage chippy painted door this weekend.

It was a quick project and I love how it turned out. I used a little Bonnie and Camille fabric but mostly Lori Holt fabric. I love how the aqua/turquoise colors make the red and blue pop. I quilted it on my Gammill Statler Stitcher using a ripples wave pattern. The finished quilt measures 19" x 15".

I finally finished a project so I could use my new quilt labels! I am so bad at labeling quilts so I am loving how easy these labels make that task.

Wishing all my fellow Americans a safe and happy 4th of July!
