Red, White and Blue

Jeanne just sent me the marketing picture page for our new project-Red, White, and Blue. This is a great project that can be put together as simply as you want. Jeanne had the idea first to NOT use a sewing machine and see what she could make. We loved the candle holder-that came first. From that we just kept talking about more stars and more stripes and NO machine stitching. This would be a great project to get a new stitcher going because it can be done as simply as you want.

But-the beauty of this project is that it can also be made using your favorite parts of quilting-hand or machine applique, wool pieces on fabric, machine or hand stitching. It is all in this project set.

And, with the election so much on every one's mind, we need as many patriotic themed items in our houses. It's really easy to get caught up in the hype and forget what an election is-a chance to be counted as a citizen and speak up for what you want America to be. Whether it's Democrat or Republican, it's still a great opportunity for each of us to be heard.

What is better than a patriotic project to work on while trying to figure out what all the speeches are really about???? Join us in stitching and thinking during this election year. Check our web site for this pattern. It's fun to make!
