Here’s a taste of the 4th of July from the quilters at MyQuiltPlace.com. MyQuiltPlace is a community of over 20,000 quilters who love to share their quilts, their techniques, and often a little of their lives with one another. Under the Galleries tab, you’ll find over 34,000 quilts! Here’s a sampling of patriotic quilts and blocks that have been uploaded during the last few years. Just click on a photo to go directly to that quilt’s MyQuiltPlace page.
Start the 4th of July off right with coffee on an owl mug rug posted by Beth A. North. What a cutie!
The stunning Rays of Hope block was designed and made by Linda Gardner Voltz for a patriotic shop hop.
Nancy Garner made the quilt below, Summer Celebration, and uses it as a tablecloth in the summer and as part of her 4th of July celebrations.
Here’s Patriotic Pineapple, added to the MyQuiltPlace Gallery by Peggy Richards. She spent 18 months drawing it in EQ then paper piecing it. The blocks are 9″ and the center and border blocks are 6″.
Check out MyQuiltPlace to see the photos, make a few friends, and talk quilting. You’ll find a world of shared experiences there and over 100 groups to feed your special interests.
Have an enjoyable 4th of July! Hope you’ve found some patriotic inspiration this month in OnPoint. Happy quilting–in red, white, blue, and ALL the colors of the rainbow!
