June Sew Fun at RMSV

by Cathy Ellsaesser, posted on

Ah, June! A time for weddings, graduations, and thankfully warmer weather for other fun events. And, of course, for June Sew Fun at Rocky Mountain Sewing and Vacuum. This month our Sew Fun presenter has a whole slate of projects to show you that we know you are going to love.

Home of the Brave

In April, our Sew Fun presenter showed us the embroidery project, Home of the Free from Primrose Lane. This month we’re delighted to show you Home of the Brave. This quilt pattern by Cathey Marie Designs is perfect for the 4th of July, the veteran in you life, or for donating to Quilts of Valor.

This nationalistic take on the American flag is made with the easy-to-use, multi-function Y Block Ruler. With a finished Size 67″ x 79″, this is a great quilt to snuggle up and watch fireworks in July on a cool summer evening.
