Happy 4th of July

Hello Everyone,

I hope all of you have a happy and safe 4th of July with loved ones. I've hand quilted only two quilts in my life and this is one of them. Long may she wave.

I looked up the word "bunting". It's a strange word but fun to say. It is believed to be of German origin from the word bunt. "Strips of cloth or material usually in the colors of the national flag, used especially as drapery or streamers for festive decoration." My front porch is festive.

The table is decorated....a little bit. We have to leave room for all of the food.

Even the raccoons are joining in the fun.

Enjoy your holiday, your family customs and your independence. It's a time for memories to be made with those you love.
As always,


  1. I want to see what the table looks like with all the food adorning it! Love the welcoming front porch... Lovely!
    My Wish for YOU and YOUR family to have a safe and fun 4th of July!
    Quilted Hugs,

  2. I love your decor! Everything is so beautiful! Happy 4th of July!

  3. Happy 4th of July my friend!!! When you said the raccoons are joining in the fun, I thought you were going to show them doing their thing some where else on the critter cam. Good thing they aren't. Your holiday quilt is lovely. Have a great weekend with your family. always Mark and Bev
