The July challenge for Project Quilting was to make a quilt inspired by Independence without making a red, white and blue quilt.

Thinking about it, I kept coming back to the notion of bunting that is so prevalent during the summer months.

I was intrigued by the notion of one of the pennants escaping, becoming independent if you will.

Thus, the Independence Bunting quilt.  I also liked the notion that the pennants were not traditional colors.  A little more rebellion suitable for the occasion.

The details.  This quilt is approximately 35x35 inches.  It is made of quilters cotton and muslin.  The backing is pieced and the binding is scrappy.  It is fused-machine applique and machine quilted.  The quilting is lines of bunting going across the quilt with a simple outline around the bunting.

Be sure to check out all of the other great quilts at Project Quilting.  And stop by Persimon Dreams to say hi to Kim and say thanks for inspiring so many cool quilts.
