Friday Fabric Refresh - Happy 4th of July!

Happy Friday!  If you are in the U.S. you know that tomorrow is July 4th, Independence Day.  You might even have today off from work like I do since the actual holiday falls on the weekend.  I thought this would be a perfect Friday for sharing some patriotic versions of a few of my patterns!

The pattern above is Hallowed Blooms, which is an add-on pattern for Budding Blooms.  I shared this version on Instagram a few weeks ago, but thought I'd share it here in case you missed it.  I used a dark navy solid for the accent and red and blue prints from Fig Tree's Catalina line.

Speaking of Budding Blooms, that pattern would also look great in patriotic colors!  Which do you like better?  The aqua stripes or the navy stripes?  The aqua is a dot print from Bonnie and Camille and the navy is the gingham from Catalina.  The other fabrics are a variety of Bonnie and Camille and Fig Tree fabrics. 

I used the same mix of Bonnie and Camille and Fig Tree fabrics for a patriotic version of Window Box as well.  The fabrics are mostly B&C's Little Snippets and Early Bird, and Fig Tree's Catalina.

Since I still can't get enough of Catalina, I used the reds and blues to recolor my Besotted pattern.  The chains use the navy dot print from the collection.

Me and My Sister Designs has a fun line coming out next month from Moda called Back Porch.  Even though it is not available yet, I had so much fun playing around with it in EQ8* that I had to share some of those recolors too!

The first is Shining Stars, a fun fat quarter pattern.  The blue background is one of the prints from the collection.

Next is the Kisses version of Blooming Kisses with a medium blue solid accent.

Finally, I used Back Porch to recolor my Midnight Clear pattern.  I couldn't decide which background color to show you, so I'm sharing them all! 

It's a little nontraditional for a patriotic quilt, but I think the yellow might be my favorite!

I hope you enjoyed these patriotic versions of some of my patterns!  Have a safe and happy Independence Day!
