Child of God, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, quilter, basket lover, amateur photographer, flower and vegetable gardener …….. some a little of who I am, some a lot of who I am, and all a part of me. When I started quilting several years ago, it sparked a passion in my creative side that I never knew existed. I fell in love with it from the very start. I love everything about it, from choosing the fabrics and designing the quilt until the time I finish the last stitch of the binding and everything in between.

Happy 4th of July and a quilted patriotic wall hanging

Happy Independence Day!  I managed to put aside a couple of hours this week to piece and quilt this little patriotic wall hanging.  

 I really NEED to somehow make more time to quilt.  I feel like I have *come home* when I am at the ironing board, cutting table, and sewing machine.  I really could feel the stress subsiding.  I hope all of you have a wonderful, relaxing, fun-filled, day with your families.  Hugs from the Bluegrass State!


  1. Sweet little patriotic piece, Rhonda.
    I hear you--quilting is my therapy. People say I am so productive--what I hear is "You must be so stressed." : )
    Happy 4th!

  2. Rhonda I LOVE your little patriotic quilt!! So, so, so cute!! Glad you got some therapy time!! You're right - you NEED to make time for YOU!
