Good Morning Quilters! And Happy 4th of July holiday to all in the USA! Here is one of my patriotic quilts, which I had two Grandsons hold up for me so I could take the picture. It’s a replica of an 1862 crib sized quilt. I wonder if the original quilt was ever used for a baby to sleep on?
The weekend was very peaceful at the lake with family playing lots of golf, while I stayed at the cabin with Penny Lane and my Granddog, Tucker. Penny and Tucker entertained themselves by spending the weekend carrying around one toy between them. It didn’t matter what toy, they both wanted it and the game was to try to take it from each other.
Also the milkweed by the back door was filled with butterflies. We have one monarch chrysalis on the porch ceiling already . There were other butterflies on the milkweed besides Monarchs. The pups took a break from their game and rested on the porch to watch butterflies with me.

The other butterflies were these. Aphrodite Fritillary is my guess after looking online. I need to read up more on butterflies. These and the Monarch had little flying “fights” in the air above the milkweed flowers. Apparently they don’t like each other.
I hope you have more quilty things to show us this week than I do. I won’t have company for the next few days, so I should make some progress on my UFOs. What are you playing/working on? Please link up to the Design Wall Monday linky party below and show us. Thanks for joining in!
