She's a Grand Old Flag!

This is the Tumbler Flag quilt by Missouri Quilt Company.
I found this vintage eyelet dress at a yard sale last weekend. My friend Paula gave me this mannequin when she closed her store.
The ribbon is from Kim!
My friend Krista encouraged me to make a tumbler quilt, "something easy and small", she said, because I have been wanting to learn to quilt forever.
The rows got a little wonky, I don't know why. But, I still love it!

Here are a few more pics of my 4th of July decorating.

See the little blue sewing box the bears are sitting in!

I have collected little girl dresses forever. Red, white, and blue!

Every day dishes!
The plate rack came from World Market.
It was a house warming present from me! LOL!

May you all have a wonderful 4th of July!

And, may God continue to Bless America.

  7. I don't see anything wonky about your quilt, it's lovely. Maybe because of the light and dark patterned fabric it looks wonky to you, but it's not. Great job, and such lovely decorations.
