Happy 4th of July!

This is a miniature quilt 7″ x 6″ that I made in the mid 1980’s.
Some day I plan to hand quilt the borders and maybe I will antique the fabric with a light tea dye. Although it is not perfect in design or execution, it reminds me of why I will celebrate July 4th., Independence Day.

I am thankful to those who and events which contributed to our nation’s history. I grew up thinking that through sacrifice, over coming obstacles and standing up for my beliefs were steps towards character building and fulfillment. My life’s path is far from perfect. My family’s country, the United States of America for five generations is far from perfect.

I celebrate our country’s accomplishments and I am proud to be one of its citizens. Wishing you all a Happy 4th of July!
