Happy Independence Day America!

It's the Fourth of July in America, and we celebrate Independence Day with flags, fireworks, barbecues and picnics, family gatherings, and quilts.....!  Since the beginning of this country flag quilts or patriotic themed quilts have been created.  The history of our country is intertwined with the history of quilting, and today these quilts are as popular as ever.  

And instead of fireworks, this postcard arrived!  It is from Carolyn in South Africa, and it is an explosion of gorgeous feathers and colors, stunning.  Carolyn, I hope you make a quilt using these colors; the feather in real life looks almost illuminated; you made some beautiful color choices with fabric and threads.  

When I get these in the mail I see them outdoors first by the mailbox and I can't even begin to tell all of you how spectacular they look, and how they take my breath away.  Thank you all for working so hard and sending me these beautiful "mini quilts"!

Happy 4th to all my quilting friends, enjoy the day.
