Wednesday night, we spent at the 'Hope of America" program put on by 5th graders from all over the valley. The kids have spent this school year learning patriotic songs and hand moves to go along with it. Then, the parents were treated to an amazing performance. The program was filmed and will be broadcasted on the 4th of July.
The kids wore shirts to make up the American Flag. C was a yellow shirt in the border.
The patriotic theme got me thinking of my red, white, and blue quilts.
This is my very first quilt--Stars of Glory--I made it for C.

This is my second quilt--Barbed Stars--I made for S.

I have been wanting to make a true patriotic quilt for a while--a flag type quilt. A while ago, I had a spectacular idea. Well, it was spectacular to me. =)
I have been cutting off 2-1/2" strips off my red, white, and blue fabric forever now. I have quite a pile. It was so fun to look through them today, it was like looking at old friends.

I have to restrain myself from starting this new project straight away. I REALLY need to finish up my Wheel of Fortune quilt and quilt my Honey Honey quilt before I work on anything else.
