I love the fourth of July. It is by far my favorite non-religious holiday. Every year I want to throw a big party and top it off with fireworks and a bonfire. Unfortunately, most years I don't succeed in getting all three of those ingredients. Still, the holiday evokes a festive party mood in me. So today I finished a little patriotic themed pillow that will sit on my sofa for a nice holiday touch. It has a country, down-homey feel to it, mostly because I used fabrics that I had in my stash. The patern was posted on quilttownusa.com. It was designed as a wall hanging, but I like it for a pillow.
