8 days of Red, White and Blue Quilts

We're celebrating Independence Day with 8 days of red, white and blue quilts! The Declaration of Independence (July 4, 1776), says: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." We hope your happiness includes plenty of quilting.
(NOTE: Please check out all the quilt books and fabric at our eBay store !)

The Pursuit of Happiness by Robin Felton, quilted by Bella Bamert

Robin Felton says, “When I think of anything made in America it reminds me that we are free to BE makers in America. We are free to pursue our happiness.... to like or dislike anything without fear. We are not without sacrifice but we are free.  We aren’t perfect, but we are free to get as close as we can.”

The Pursuit of Happiness was made with American Made Brand fabrics for the Farm to Fabric Challenge, exhibited at the 2015 Pacific International Quilt Festival.

  1. Rather unusual for a patriotic quilt but still has power in the red, white, and blue.

  2. Very bold design and very interesting, too. I'm looking forward to enjoying your eight days of red, white & blue. I just purchased fabric with a red, white and blue stripe . . . this is the time of year to find great fabric choices in these colors and I know that your posts will be inspiring.
    Happy Quilting!
    Connie :)
