Quilt banner for my kitchen door...


I found this pattern in the May 2004 issue of Quilting Ideas from Better Homes and Gardens. They actually made it into a flag but I wanted something different to hang on the back door as you enter my kitchen from the porch. I think I am going to make one the same size for each season so all I have to do is hang it on the same nails.
I have started on for fall and I am working on the colors but I hope to have it done soon. If your library has this issue check it out. They have the pattern for this one and two more. One with sunflowers and one that is a USA primitive flag.
I have been busy working on our pool and finishing our softball season. We did end in second place but didn't make it to the finals in tourneys...but the girls are glad the season is over because we have more to do this summer and it is already almost the 4th of July. How can that be?
I planted a few flowers to day but then it got so hot that I decided to work on the laundry...now how much fun is that?
I am going to come visit each of you and then...who knows...might start something new!!!
Until next time...be blessed.

That's very nice,I'm drawn to those patriotic items as well. I had so many things scattered all over the place I gathered them all together and made my laundry room the "red, white and blue" room. It looks a lot better when displayed all together.

I wanted to get more flowers too...my lil porch has a few empty spots. I'm keeping my eye out for an old rusty red wagon.

I can't believe the Fourth is almost here....didn't summer vacation just start? We just got back from the Dairy Queen...it was GOOD!
Hugs,
Robin
