It is Week 10 of the Happy Quilting Marathon and this one is kind of a funny story on how it got picked for this week :) Remember how I shared about the Liberty Boxes . . . well mine came and I was super excited about the quilt project in it so I have been working on it all week and the top is done and it just needs to be quilted and bound. So I was taking it to the Long Arm to "be quilted next" when I realized I needed to do my Quilting Marathon quilt for the week. I looked in the closet of quilt tops and realized that my 2021 Liberty Box project was sitting there in the Marathon Waiting to be Quilted que. Well, we can't finish 2022 before 2021, right . . . . So here it is, the Stars and Stripes Table Topper!!!
Isn't it just so fun!!! This is one of those that I am smacking my head for not just quilting it when I finished piecing it a year ago. It is the cutest table topper and it didn't take more than an hour to load, quilt, and bind it. I just love all of the happy prints in red, white and blue, they just make me smile!!
I think my favorite part of this quilt is the white print with the red stars. When cutting the project, I thought that was kind of weird to not just use the solid white there. But now that it is all done, I just love the way it frames up the center block and makes the outside blocks have a cool interlocking look. Just so festive!!!
When I quilted it, I decided to stick with the 4th theme and do all over fireworks!!! I haven't quilted this design in a while and forgot just how much fun it is to quilt. And isn't it just perfect for this table topper, what a fun way to finish it off ;)
And now, this will have a happy new home on my dining room table from now until the end of July!! And I look forward to bringing it out each year to celebrate. How grateful I am to live in a land of freedoms and am so thankful to the men and women who have fought to keep it that way.
And that is Quilt #11 - Stars and Stripes!! 11 Down and only 15 more quilts to go in the Happy Quilting Marathon :) Getting closer to half way!!!
And that is it for today, thanks for popping in to share this finish with me!!!
I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!
