I want to share some of my Americana/Patriotic quilts and how I’m using them this year. Hope this is inspiring to you!
This setting is at the studio, the runner is in my Banner Day book. I’ve had the stool for a long time, my uncle built it for me and a friend painted it in stars and stripes. I’ve always loved Americana in our home. Some years I’ve had a summer tree decorated with Americana. The pincushion was made by Candy Hargrove, love it! The doll was made by a lady I met at Road to CA a few years ago, she has since moved to another state, she sold some handmade items though Fat Quarter Quilt Shop in Vista, CA and I was lucky enough to buy this one.
Chloe resting against Patriotic pillows, will have to get the hand vac out I’m sure.
Petit Snowball quilt in Patriotic colors for summer, pattern in my Banner Day book. I keep thinking I should make one of these in Christmas colors or Fall colors too.
Repro doll quilt from several years ago, this year it is resting atop a document box on a tall bucket bench with a rye straw basket on it. Americana happiness peeking out. 🙂
Liberty Star Sampler quilt from my Banner Day book. This year over the cupboard door, last year over a wing chair. Mine is cotton on cotton, but it could certainly be wool appliqué on cotton!
Eagle Medallion from 2001, still love this quilt, this summer it is over the loveseat in the den where I stitch. The book that the pattern was in, is out of print of course, 2001 is a long time ago in quilt years.
Decided to change out the quilt over the cupboard door with this Courthouse Steps from my Remembrances book. I don’t have enough places to display quilts, what to do? Change them out so I can enjoy them all!
And last, but not least . . . must sew with flag pincushion this time of year.
Safe travels over the long weekend. Enjoy time with friends and family and maybe time for a stitch or two.
