Dog Days of Summer

Dear Friends,

Little Hannah came to visit us on Monday. Hannah is Tina's little canine companion. Can you tell she's a little girl with her pink leash?



Holli came in to show us a quilt she recently completed called Crayon Box. Her color selection was perfect for this beautiful quilt. Thank you for bringing it in Holli! You've done a fantastic job.



Carol (left) and Barbara (right) are showing off Carol's quilt called Over Easy. This was a class that Linda Ballard taught. Carol came in to select a small inner border that matched the outer border fabric she already had. We found the perfect match from the "Itsy Bits" fabric line.



Another Carol brought in her Botanical Birdhouse quilt to show us how great the border fabric looks that she picked out last week at the shop. We found some great wide backing fabric for her(complete with birds) and she was happy as can be.




Ginny drove down from Jackson to show us her spectacular blocks from my Blossom of Friendship block of the month. Her blocks are incredible! She has added her own personal touch to each and every block. She's well on her way to creating an heirloom!






Now if all of the above isn't enough to inspire you.......how about a GIVEAWAY!!!!!

Tell us your favorite Fourth of July tradition or memory in the comment section by 5pm on Monday July 13th. If your name is selected, you will win either a Jelly Roll or a Honey Bun of Zippity Do Dah. So you have two chances to win. The winner will be selected by a blindfolded Harley. The winners will be posted on the blog next Tuesday, July 14th.





Good luck to all of you and have a wonderful week of quilting.

As always,

Lynn

Fireworks has to be my favorite memory of the fourth of July. Twenty-six years ago I was watching while awaiting the birth of my son. He was born on the 6th!

Celebrating my sister's fourth birthday at the fireworks and she said, "I am so lucky because they have fireworks just for me."

It wouldn't be the 4th without fireworks and apple pie ala mode!

We have ventured up to Bandon, Oregon a number of times. They put on a spectacular Fourth of July celebration. The entire town turns out. There is a parade, fish fry, craft sale, fireworks over the lighthouse and even a dog show! It's wonderful.

My favorite 4th of July memory is when I was in high school, we would have concerts in the park and an ice cream social. After the concert there was fireworks in the park. It was always a wonderful gathering in a small town in Arizona.

I love all the traditions of the 4th of July, hanging the flag from the porch,going to a parade in the morning, laying a red,white and blue quilt on the green grass after the parade in the park, having a picnic then going to the fair and watching fireworks. The best part of all is relaxing throughout a sun filled day.

We live on a river between 2 lakes in northern Wisconsin. Every 4th. I sit on the dock after dark & watch the beautiful display of fireworks above the trees in both directions - double the peasure & fun!! But the best display is usually put on by the hundred or so fireflies lighting up the swamp on both sides of the dock!

This is my first visit to your blog - love the eye candy. Thanks so much! annmarie
