Out of the box...my box!

I've laid out some plans for this summer to step out of my box.  My first "outing" from the box was to enter a quilt challenge sponsored by our local quilt shop and the downtown merchants called
Small Town Summer.

The Quilts were to reflect what summer in a small town means to me – picnics, family, food, ants, whatever comes to mind!
The Quilts will be on display in our downtown shops for voting, and prizes will be awarded to the top 10 quilts as voted by the public.
Here is my entry...
Porches with Flags
I love porches decked out with flags! The Flags (and colorful bunting) go up for Memorial Day and stay up for Flag Day, 4th of July and on through Labor Day!

This picture of the Faires House at Chestnut Square Historic Park was my inspiration piece.  Of course, I did take some artistic liberties, but that's the fun of creating! (I needed a chair to sit on to enjoy my drink!)

If you're in the area, I hope you'll vote for my quilt.  So many wonderful goodies to win!

Until tomorrow,

I think you did a great job! I know that was a lot of work, and you should be proud of your entry.

I'm sure you'll get lots of compliments on it.
