The Glorious Fourth

I want to wish a Happy Fourth of July to all. I made this wall hanging several years ago, and hang it up every year at this time. As you see, I just put it on a hanger and hang it on the door of the hall closet. I've been hunting through all of my files trying to find the pattern I used, as I would like to credit the designer of the wall hanging. But no luck there.
Cheri Sullivan wrote in and asked about the quilt I started, and the answer is yes--The crazy patches will just be the center stripe in the Roman Stripe design. Actually, crazy patches can be used instead of regular fabric as part of the design for any number of simple quilt blocks, like nine patch, windmill, shoo-fly, etc. I guess that's why I can use an empty coffee can next to my sewing machine for any scraps I'm throwing away, as they will be very tiny. I use two laundry hampers to store my scraps. No matter how many scraps I use, it seems that those hampers are always full to the brim!

I like your patriotic quilt. It has a primitive look and that's what I like. Good job.

Thanks for stoppin' by my blog. The news says the 219,000 arces burning now has a 20% containment. Not much but progress!
