Happy 4th of July.....Huh?

Well, this was supposed to be finished by the 4th of July!  It was a little kit that I have had for about 8 years.  Thought I'd whip it up in time for the holiday and I had even finished the top in time.  Quilted it all but the star part, then put it away........huh???  It must have gotten stuck in the middle of a pile somewhere.




I finished it this week.  I'm going to look at this as a glass half-full kind of thing.  I'm 8 months ahead of time for the next year's celebration!

Blessings, Cathi

Veteran's Day is Nov. 11!

Pearl Harbor Day is Dec. 7.

Then there's Memorial Day in May and Flag Day in June--all before July 4.

You're not late. It's never too late to put up the red, white, and blue.

I love it. Who says you have to wait until July to display it, it's nice to look at all year long.

Cute quilt. I do that all the time - start a quilt for a holiday - don't finish it in time - on the ufo pile it goes. I'll be doing Halloween in February. Now you have a headstart on summer quilting!

Oh, I'd still say it's right on time. USMC birthday is November 10 *oooh rah!* and Veteran's Day is November 11 . . . . plenty of 'patriotic season' left in this old year *s*
