Old Glory















Finished this pillow just in time for the 4th of July - its called Old Glory by Crab-apple Hill.  I do love a nice ruffle on a pillow, don't you?  Enjoying fireworks tonight, and bbq ribs, blue cheese potato salad, corn on the cob, baked beans, and rhubarb strawberry crumble for dinner.  Watching Jazz by Ken Burns this afternoon.  What a glorious day - hope your 4th was just as good!

Your stitching is beautiful on the pillow! Can I come over for some crumble? :0) I wish...

I like that there is lots of color on your block. The ruffle is a good addition. The pillow is something you can have out on display all summer long.

oh what a wonderful pillow I LOVE the design, great choice of colors you made.
yes love the ruffles!!!!!
I am happy for you that you finished it to be able to enjoy over the 4th but I would leave it out at least thru Sept
if not all year long :)

What a great project, I have that pattern somewhere (?) maybe I"ll get it in time for next year! Sounds like an excellent menu for the 4th.
