    This beauty gave me a little more trouble than it should have but in the end I think it came out wonderful! Will be perfect to lay on and watch the fireworks on the 4th of July! Still trying to decide on a good name for it

    the red and blue squares.. those are stars.. but they look like polka dots on my screen :D

    Really nice coordination of colors and patterns .... great job.

    Sooooo, you plan to sit on it to watch the Fireworks! Hurrah for YOU! ....

    Don't be surprised to have the quilt police upbraid you for using the quilt so casually .... just smile

    Mine are for USING .... but there are those who don't think I cherish mine quite enough if I use them for a picnic on the lawn with the grands ..... especially when they see they ARE hand-quilted. Oh, MY!

    :lol:

    What a beauty. I love the construction of your quilt. God Bless America really does sound like a good name. (And, I think it's perfect for watching fireworks!)

    HAHA! Im sure they would lol! Never fear I have a huge blanket that would be going underneath it (though i always "double blanket" when im sitting on the ground) :D Besides for me when i see a quilt being used it just makes me smile and go start up a conversation. To me it means they are loved and admired. Heck my hand sewn and quilted one keeps my DH toes warm at night since I aparently steal the covers. >.>
