July 4 2019

**** Formatting Woes Caused this Blog Post NOT to Post on July 4th****
PLUS I tried to do the posting on my older laptop - I learned that lesson well!
July Fourth on the pond is a unique adventure.  Wave runners and pontoon boats, jet skiers and ski boats, the place gets crowded.

Once a year there is an awesome party going on which culminates in a huge fireworks presentation sponsored by the JPCA.

I hope everyone enjoys the day and is thankful for having the opportunity TO enjoy the day.

Happy July Fourth 2019!

Catching up with quilty things.

I am participating in this year's 100 blocks in 100 days challenge, primarily on Instagram with posts on my Facebook pages.

Here are the first four days.

Block 1
Block 2
Block 3

Block 4

I have also visited my ironing board this morning so here are blocks from other quilts in progress.

"Merry and Bright" was the Pat Sloan block of the week in the fall of 2018.  Only the alternate blocks are left for this one.

This is block 2 of the Curved Ruler Block of the Month that i purchased from Amelia's Garden in New York state a few years ago.  Progress has been slow on this one but it is coming along.

Block-Who-Knows-What-Number of the "Box Kite" blocks.  This Bonnie Hunter design is probably ready to be webbed in the near future.

Also in progress is another Pat Sloan project, her 2016 Block of the Month pattern called "My Secret Garden".  I am up to block 8 of the twelve block sampler.

All of these have been ongoing projects that I work on as time permits.  They will all be finished in due time.

Hope you have a wonderful US Independence Day on this July 4th, 2019.
Our fore-fathers sacrificed much so that we would be able to relax and enjoy this day!
