Ready to celebrate the 4th with a GIVEAWAY

I have been sewing with these beautiful Island Batik fabrics.  The colors are just so rich and the fabric feels so amazing.  So to celebrate the 4th of July, I want to share a fat eighth collection of these patriotic colors.


Eight Fat Eighths for you to enjoy.  As these can be sent in a flat rate envelope, I am gladly including my international readers.

Just leave a comment and tell me what you will be doing on the 4th of July.  In the US we celebrate Independence Day, but it's the 4th of July all over the world.  If you are follower, you may leave a second comment letting me know how you follow.  AND I would love for you to follow me on Instagram.  My kids are trying to bring me up to the 21st century so they have given me an Instagram account. I've been following a lot of my favorite designers via Instagram.  Just type in happycottagequilter in the search box, and it should pop up.  Leave a 3rd comment after you sign up and I will check my Instagram to allow you to follow.I will close the giveaway on July the 4th.

And our little lady is finally home!


She needed a few repairs and parts needed to be ordered, but we have finally gotten her home.  I think she is SO pretty :-)

Happy Quilting!

I live in a small town but they have a huge 4th of July parade, rodeo and they cap off the evening with an hour long fireworks display. The best thing about it is that I can watch the fireworks from my back deck.

I love to make potato salad for the 4th of July. It just seems so summery. Had to make it a few days early as we're expecting our first Tropical Storm, possibly upgraded to a Hurricane and I'm afraid I'll be w/out power!
Thank you for the opportunity on the Batiks. My fav color is ORANGE , and blue is so complimentray.
