Fourth of July Mini Mystery Quilt

Summer's here! I love making little projects using my red, white and blue fabrics around this time of year. 

Gameboard quilt from my Prairie Children book.

Martha Washington Star quilt

I miss our yearly Patriotic Pincushion Parades. But, honestly, I now have so many bowl fillers and pincushions I don't know where to put them. 

I thought it was time for a Fourth of July Mini Mystery Quilt. Quilters -  grab some of your favorite red, white and blue scraps and join me in making a little patriotic quilt for the upcoming July 4th holiday. 

We'll be making a SMALL quilt (less than 12", depending upon your borders) in three parts. You'll find the first step of the pattern in my Facebook group files or on my website under the Fourth of July Mystery tab.  Step 2 will be posted on Friday June 24. Simple enough to get it done and ready for display by July 4.  Have fun! 

Some of you have asked me about my Patriotic Pincushions patterns from years past.  you'll find the pattern in my Etsy shopQuick and easy.

Red white and blue- so true! They are wonderful colors, especially at this time of year. All of your creations “spark” a celebratory feeling. Blessings Dear Kathy.

I also have a ton of pincushions in a basket. But I do love your red/white/blue pincushions!
I think one can never have too many.
thanks for the little mystery for 4th of July!

Kathy, I finished the little quilt top this morning and found it very easy to put together. However, my finished centre didn’t quite measure 7.5 which tells me I have to be more accurate with my scant quarter of an inch each time I start sewing. Will be very helpful when I start working on my Schoolgirl Sampler.
Many thanks for the pattern and the interesting story attached
