Red, White and Blue

Both of these patriotic wall hangings were from exchanges. You can see that one is from 2001! You can also see that poor Uncle Sam hasn't even got a face! I do like wall hanging sized quilts for a couple of reasons....1) they are quick to make, and 2) I enjoy them draped across a chair or couch during its special season for everyone to see and "aahhh" over.
I have been slowly working on the "Antitude" project but nothing worth showing.....since you probably wouldn't be able to see the progress yet. I finished a rag quilt for my son-in-law for Christmas also. 1 down...too-many-to-think-about to go! I love Christmas if I have ideas of what to give to people. I saw a pattern on Mrs Moen's blog (see my side bar to go to her blog) and I think a cute Santa Cat table runner would be fun to make for some of my children and friends.
Thanks for stopping by and Keep on Quilting. Lynda

I love those reds, whites and blues; they are our national colours too (red, white and blue flag). We use these colours for the 17th of May which is our national holiday. I made tablerunners for mom and mother in law in these colours; that reminds me - I always meant to make one for myself...

I too like wall hangings, thay are so easy to display. Norwegians use a lot of table runners, so there are a lot of quilted ones on show & tell at our guild meetings. They are the perfect size for some little interior changes a makes easy and great gifts. I'm looking forward to have nice things (safely) on our table again now that grandson is getting older.
