Red, White, and Blue Quilts

Good morning!  Today I wanted to share the amazing quilt my friend Sheri is making for me.  She knows that I love my country and my patriotic colors.  She also is making a cute quilt for my new grandson, Parker.  Parker's was born in Hawaii in May and his daddy is from an Alaskan island  so Sheri went with a coastal theme.  Here is a link to her artsy blog, sunshineintheattic.

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Fourth of July!
