Getting ready for the 4th!!

This mini finishes 13" high by 21" long.

It was fun to assemble my flag.  You can make your own with this tutorial I published on my Elm Street Quilts blog.

I outlined the USA in black using my FMQ foot and black thread.  I traced over it a few times to get a fun outline.   The background fabric was done with a basic stipple.  The map is not quilted - it is fused to the background.  I did secure the stars stitching in the ditch around the block.

Hope you have wonderful plans for the 4th!!  Summer is here - temps in North Carolina hit 100 degrees multiple times in June!!

Happy Stitching!
