    Good morning ladies.

    July 4th may be Independence Day to you. To me it's the day before my birthday. Shame you can't all call round. Visit my blog instead. Hope it's not too boring.

I just got Quilt Motion, a computerized quilting program, and this is the first quilt done with my Bernina on the frame using Quilt Motion, so it is extra special in more ways than one.

    Thanks again for the encouragement to finish and for looking.

    Oh Nursie beautiful beautiful job. I aspire to be able to quilt like that.
    Have an awesome day!

    Absolutely beautiful! Is that your own design? You might have mentioned that before, but I haven't been on the QB very much lately and haven't read all the posts.

    Unfortunately, I didn't get anything done for the challenge -- too much going on around here! I guess I forgot how busy the summer can be!

    Muv your riddle still has me perplexed. I love riddles but this one has me completely off course.. I suppose because my history.. is not as strong as it should be. Will keep watch for the answer though.
    Have an awesome day!

    Thomp the challenge isn't over.. you still have plenty of time... this is the challenge that never ends. LOL Internationally speaking there are many many patriotic holidays all year round.
    Have an awesome day!

    Morning all from BC, where the sun has finally decided to shine.

    nursie76 - well done! You did a fabulous job and the quilting is amazing. So glad we could motivate you. Sounds like you might have to make at least one more quilt if the guys don't want to share, or if you don't want to share.

    Muv - HAPPY BIRTHDAY

    thomp116 - As Jenniky said, we will be around. Start something now and you have 364 days in which to finish it. That means you can even slot it in between other projects.

    QuiltE - Am I reading correctly and Monty may get some friends? Or are you anticipating each of us will have our own version? Oops, shouldn't have said that. No point in giving you more ideas.

    Canada D'Eh made it's debut on a damp Canada Day. It was draped over the seats of our red and white MINI in a car show at the event. Too bad I couldn't even open the windows so people could see it but here are two shots:

    Sorry, a third one ended up in there and I can't get rid of it. I guess you are stuck looking at a lot of red and white on this post.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Muv!!!!!!!

    Here's wishing your the happiest and best one ever ..... and celebrating in ways that are special and important to you. So of course, I'm that probably means a good sewing day ... and perhaps a visit to The George? ..... and lots of birthday cake too!!!

    Thanks for sharing your blog ... I'll be watching, and learning about your machines! (and what not to do around them ... eg. tea!). What a lovely model thistle!

    So you know what is coming
    NOW ..........

    Good Morning all!

    MUV - Happy happy b-day! Hope you have a nice day.

    Jenniky - Thanks for the kind words. I am lucky to have a computerized component to my machine and frame, so I can't take all the credit for the quilting. But I do like how it turns out that my machine and I make a good team. lol

    Thomp - Lot's of Patriotic holidays in the future. You'll get something done near one of them, never fear! And we'll be here to cheer! The pattern for the quilt came out of a Stash Dash in 2010 - using Pat Sloans fabric - Sweet Liberty and hence was called row of Sweet Liberty. Each set of blocks in the sampler was purchased as a kit one at each of the seven shops in the dash. They each had a certain final setting and you could purchase a finishing kit if you so desired. I just chose the setting I liked and added my own twists. Thanks for the kind words.

    Works4Me - Well, DH has a quilt and I have another in the planning stage, DS is still deciding what kind he wants. But meanwhile he has an afghan I crocheted for him, so he won't freeze....(fat chance in July, eh?) Your quilt is gorgeous and the little car is so cute! Thanks for sharing.

    QuiltE - Monty can't have a non-patriotic friend? Besides, in my home, Franky IS patriotic as I live in the land of Halloween 365 days per year. (Franky is short for Frankenstein for those not in the know. My next project is my own Halloween block of the month starting this August with a Frankenstein centre.)

    W4Me ... You might recal, that THIS IS THE PATRIOTIC thread!
    So you have two options ...
    1. Franky waves a flag proud and high.
    OR
    2. Start a new challenge thread!

    Oh me too, I would love to quilt like that, but doubt it could be done easily on my DSM!

    nursie76: Gorgeous quilt!! and of course love your quilting!!!!

    Well I didn't get my patriotic "Twisted Star" quilt finished as yet....but it is on my Need to finish UFO list for sure. I just need to put the corners on it (it is on point) and then sandwich and quilt it. Definitely doable.

    I have made a challenge for myself to finish one project before starting a new one.....I have a long list to UFO's to finish and an even longer list of new projects to start!! Neither list seems to ever get any shorter........hmmmm.........

    So, glad this challenge is to continue!

    Well, finally I came down with the cold DH has had for a week. I feel yukky. Not even like sewing and certainly not like staying at the computer. So, see y'all later.

    yayaquilts - that's what I do, finish one before another goes on the cutting table. That will be messed up when I start the BOM but I'll manage somehow.

    We are here to provide encouragent and to ooh and ahh over the progress you make. Any new photos so we can cheer you on?

    SewExtremeSeams - so sorry to hear you are under the weather. Sometimes we all need to just sit back and rest.

    QuiltE - like I said, our place is Halloweenville and I am the mayor. I still have at least two Canada quilts in me. One is even in the middle of the design stage. But, I'll have fabric for at least three so better put the thinking cap back on. Hmmm, challenge - make a character of your choosing? Build a quilt around a character of your choosing? The second one would even work as a patriotic quilt for me. It is the one already part-way through the design stage. Hmmm, the one quilt out, one quilt in rule is definitely in jeopardy of being broken.
