Happy 4th of July!

We're celebrating America's Independence Day with a concert and a tribute to red, white and blue quilts!  Here are beautiful flag quilts that caught our eye. The Old Glory design, below, is made with 11 different 6" quilt blocks.

Old Glory, 36 x 57",  by Connie Fittro, quilted by Donna Goldberg

The blue field is made with six different Ohio Star blocks in traditional prints, while the red and white blocks include Dutchman's puzzle, sawtooth star, bow tie, spool, four patch and and nine patch blocks.  This patriotic quilt is based on the Old Glory pattern by Yellow Creek Quilt Designs.  Donna Goldberg used feather, swirl, and loop quilting to highlight the white areas.
