Customer Quilts | February 12, 2016 | By

I finished this beautiful July 4th themed quilt last week. Made by Suzanne, it was a UFO she couldn’t even remember where it came from. I agree, it always feels great to finish a project you put away many years ago!






I kept with the patriotic theme and used lots of stars and shapes that were in the quilt fabrics. Lots of ruler work, which I love!






My lesson for today, don’t think too hard about the quilting! Let the fabrics be your guide.

    Thanks for sharing the quilting motifs you worked up on this quilt, very helpful. AND- your tip on ‘… let the quilt speak to you on how to quilt it…” I think we all ‘over-think’ the quilting end of it. 🙂 L

      Great to hear, Lesley! I tend to over think a quilt, so this was a really fun and easy to “read” quilt!

    This is the best patriotic one I have ever seen and the quilting just shows it to every advantage. You are way too good.
