Flag country...I've only pieced a couple of quilts that I would call "4th of July quilts". This one is from the 1990's and lives at my DD's house. It's about 30" square. I did two of them at the same time. The other one lives with my first DDIL. It's machine pieced and machine quilted. I'm having a quiet holiday weekend at home. I had been scheduled to take a bus tour to Mackinaw Island over the 4th of July, and was really looking forward to that. But plans change, and you do what you need to do. Maybe next year..*S* There are no "fireworks" in my plans this weekend. Our village has a rather nice display up on the hill overlooking the valley where I live. Going alone isn't something that I care to do. Lots of years behind me where with blankets, bottles and snacks we took the family to where ever the fireworks were. Those days are part of the past now. The memories of them are good ones..*VBS* And I find that while I may wax nostalgic, I don't miss going enough to change things. Even at Disney last Sept., I didn't find fireworks appealing enought to stay at the Happy Kingdom til well after dark...and if you can miss the display they put on, you really aren't into fireworks that much.
Now if it was a concert on the green, with a pavillion and live music, I'd be there lawn chair in hand...*G*
