“Old Country Quilt”

Description from Cuban Queen Crazy Chick: B Lambert's "Americana" pick inspired me to do this one. I know it's been done lots of times before, but there's something really charming about Americana decor. Plus, it's almost the 4th of July! ;)

    Thanks, Kitty :) I’m not sure how I’d turn this one into a jewelry set….

    Gloriously gorgeous Ivy! I adore the 4th of July (maybe because it’s near my birthday), and red-white & blue picks.

    I think it’d be cool as a 3 strand necklace, one red one white one blue, twisted and a bracelet alternating different red, white and blue beads with the stars as charms and a simple pair of earrings with a blue bead, a white one then a red with a different star hanging from the end of each.

    I took them 2 years ago when I spent the 4th with a friend of mine and her two children. We went to the town’s parade, the library book sale, had a bbq cook-out lunch with her husband (a chef), got our hair cut, and went to the fireworks. All in all a very full & fun day.

    Hey, those are pretty good fireworks pics! Mine always come out blurry. These were taken last year in Lake George, NY:

    CUTE pick!!! CAS & Ivy those are GREAT fireworks pictures!!!

    I love your fireworks pictures too! I think it’s the nature of the etherealness of fireworks that pictures of them come out just a tab blurry.

    I absolutely love to see fireworks! We have always gone over the 4th since I was little, and now we always take our children. There’s something magical about fireworks! One time Rob and I saw them at Point State Park in Pittsburgh, PA. Wow! By far the best I’ve seen, except Disney’s! They put them off over the water and timed them perfectly to Patriotic music! AMAZING!!

    Ivy, this is a great pick – so appropriate!!! My husband, Bob (we Chickies seem to gravitate to Roberts, Robertos, Bobs, etc.)is crazy over fireworks. We travel all over to see them and he sometimes gets to shoot them off with the professionals!

    Ivy, this is a beautiful combo! Love it! :D

    Chicky Cat, your suggestion for a jewelry set based on this sounds lovely! :D

    Thanks for sharing your fireworks photos, Christine and Ivy! Fun to see and no dogs were scared! LOL

    There IS something about a man named Robert…… ;-)

    Hey, Mike’s are great, too!!! Just saying. :-)
    Love this pick, and yes, I think it would make a great set just as discussed.
    Thanks for sharing the pics of fireworks; I can hear fire crackers going off outside right now. ;)
