My Entry for the Blogger's Quilt Festival

My entry for the Blogger's Quilt Festival is this quilt. It is "The Fourth of July" designed by Judy Niemeyer. I made this quilt in 2007.  It was a class at our LQS to learn the freezer paper method of paper piecing. No paper to remove from the seams!  I made this quilt for my daughter and we named it "Meghan's Independence Quilt". It was made to go with her into her new home. At the time she really didn't have a new home yet, but we were planning ahead! She finally got her very own home December 2008. She loves her quilt very much! It has red flannel for the backing. It is very snuggly and made with love.
