Happy 4th of July

Have you ever noticed that when you hand a baby a chunk of watermelon....they appear to have an innate ability to become one with the fruit? Nothing says the 4th of July to me, like a baby eating watermelon.

Do you ever have leftover charm packs, or bits of them, and don't know what to do with them? A disappearing 4 patch, started with 5" squares, finished at 48"x64". A nice lap quilt, quilted on straight lines and bound with 2 1/2" wide double fold binding....leftover from other projects, pieced together. A nice quick quilt.

Happy holidays...Elaine
