Knee high on the 4th of July? 7-4-21

Here is Tim’s corn – the irrigators were on so I couldn’t go stand in the field but it’s at least 7’ tall!

Remember this just last April?

Here’s a reader photo that I believe I forgot to post and it’s a great quilt!

A great 4th of July project –

Don’t forget that all our patterns are on sale yet this evening and tomorrow morning Wear Warm Clothes will appear in our online store.

Can you find the online shop? Go to our blog home page and at the top will be a tab that says “shop”. Click on that. If your screen says “menu”, click on that and “shop” will become available. If you have trouble feel free to contact me at

Here’s a quilt photo that showed up on Martingale’s feed and I love it! So simple and so perfect!

I’m going to watch Capitol Fourth and sew something!

Happy July 4th, Everybody!

    Man oh man, that corn is something to be admired.
    Great quilts today.
    Happy 4th to all.

    We noticed above knee high in NC, too. We also watched Capitol 4th and I sewed a binding on an Honor Flight quilt so I can share my DD’s from May and June. Enjoy the rest of the night.

    Love Jeanine’s quilt. . . Is there a pattern for it?? Probably wouldn’t be too hard ti figure it out, tho’!!

    1. Wanda in W. TX

      It is a free pattern on the Bonnie Hunter website, under the Free Patterns tab. The pattern is called Bricks and Stepping Stones. There are other similar patterns out there as well. I think Missouri Star Quilt Company also has one.

      Peggy S. – It’s a free pattern from Bonnie Hunter’s website. It’s called Bricks and Stepping Stones. Fun and easy.

    We watched the capital show on PBS and also the Macy’s one too. Spectacular!
    Now if only the noise from fireworks people are doing all around us would stop so the dogs calm down.

    Kathy in western NY: I echo your request that the folks doing all of the fireworks please STOP! Poor Bailey was just beside herself all weekend because our neighborhood sounded like a war zone! It helped taking her out in the car for a ride in the evening. We did watch the PBS Capitol Show last night; a tradition at our house.

    Happy 4th of July to you Mary. That corn seems like it grew overnight! Love the pictures of those pretty quilts. Thank you for sharing

    Love both of the DDs today. Cute flag pattern. I would love to make that for next year. Could that be found online too?

    The corn is magnificent!

    7′ is just a tad over knee high!! HA Is that Martingale quilt a free pattern or just a photo they were sharing? I looked in several Martingale areas but didn’t see it..I agree, BEAUTIFUL and perfect!

      Sherrill – and I can’t find it again either – it was from a book, I think. I’ll keep looking.

      Sherrill – I found it on Instagram! It’s from the book Time Honored Traditions by Annette Plog

    Hooray! Just purchased Wear Warm Clothes! I have wanted this pattern for so long: thank you Mary, Connie and Kayla for making it available in the online shop! Stash, here I come!

      Fiona – yes, this is one of our most beloved quilts! Away you go, Fiona!!

    And I’m so happy as I have the original patterns of Wear Warm Clothes. Just love my wonderful pile of patterns. I probably won’t live long enough to make all of them, but am going to make a good try.
    And it is raining!!! We need it so much. I think I heard about 24 grass fires in Rapid City were started by fireworks yesterday. They had brush trucks stationed all over town.
    Happy July 4th everybody. Be careful. Betty in Rapid City

    I hope you had a good birthday weekend. My uncle had a July 4 birthday.
    I like that quilt too – simple but effective.
    It’s been fairly quiet around here on the quilting front. I did finish another quilt coat. A friend wants me to do a class at her shop. I’m finding it hard to organize myself to do one.
    It’s raining nicely this evening. It’s been a fairly wet spring and summer here.
