Happy Independence Weekend

Machine quilted - by me
In America we are celebrating Independence Day with a long holiday weekend.  Saturday is the actual DAY.

I made this quilt for the Fourth of July several years ago.  I've shared it before, I hope you don't mind.
It was a Free To Use pattern from Windham for a Mary Koval Coverlet fabric line.

Hand Applique Stars
Center - red colorway of the eagles
Backed with a coverlet reproduction fabric from the same line
Have a great weekend!


  1. The flag design is a good use of those fabrics. I had a couple pieces at one time. Never would have thought of the flag.

  2. So glad you shared this again as I hadn't seen it before! It is just lovely. Beautiful fabrics. Happy Independence Day!

  3. It still looks great. Happy 4th to you.
    We remember it as the day Vicksburg fell and I am from there.

  4. What a fun quilt! Funny, nothing is closed today or Monday, so not a long weekend here in Central Oregon.

    1. Holiday for DH and quite a few service related businesses are closed here.

  5. I've seen a lot of flag quilts lately, but nothing like this. It is a beautiful interpretation. I love the way the red prints enhance the stripes. Thanks for showing it again. I don't recall seeing it before.

  6. Thanks for sharing your quilt - I had not seen it before. It's a wonderful pattern and amazing fabrics. What a beautiful Independence Day remembrance!

  7. I don't remember you sharing it before and even if I did I wouldn't mind seeing this beauty again. Awesome fabric! Happy 4th to you, too. I want to go to bed but the dogs are glued to my side with all the noise from fireworks. Wouldn't be able to sleep now anyway!

  8. Glad you shared this quilt. I hadn't seen it and it's really an awesome use of those coverlet fabrics. Very clever.

  9. Wow, I don't remember seeing this. So beautiful! I was drooling over that fabric line way back when. Just lovely!

  10. What a great use of RW&B fabrics. I have some in my Lincoln quilt. I just love all Americana quilts and this one is really special
