Independence Day Mini

Celebrating a holiday is just a little nicer when you can sew something and put out some handmade creations!  I have quite a few patriotic UFOs but still chose to start something new!  I just gotta do it!
I often make two thinking it isn't much more trouble to make another at the same time.  And it isn't, but definitely I'd probably have less UFOs if I only made one thing at a time.

I just have to finish appliqueing 3 more stars and then I should be able to finish them both up before the 4th!  I can hardly wait to put it on the little quilt stand!

This is my version of a connecting threads pattern and they also have a quilt kit.

And here's a little sneak peak at a gift I'm making with charm squares

Very cute! I need to get one of those stands for my daughter! Then I could just make her different blocks to change out for holidays and seasons. What fun would that be!?

Super cute! Your fabrics are perfect for the stars!
I had to laugh at your UFO observation, from making two of everything!

Love your minis! I tend to make two or more at a time too. It just makes sense. Plus, eventually you'll have enough blocks to make a quilt or two right?
