    Awesome quilt and quilting! 54-40 or fight was Polk's campaign slogan, and referred to the desire to annex the entire Oregon Territory - which went right up through what is now British Columbia. Polk backed down after he was elected (didn't want to fight the British - again).

    Yes that is a lovely quilt. Your quilting is fantastic. I love that it 'looks' hand done with each square individually done. I like that machine quilting so much better than an all over pattern.
    Enjoy the day, Chickadee_42us

I love how Doris has used the dark brown, beige and pink fabrics in her quilt. Doris gives me a lot of freedom to do whatever I want on her quilts so I always have a lot of fun, maybe too much at times. You will notice that I chose to quilt feathers around the star blocks; then changed and quilted sunflowers in the nine-patch blocks with peebles in the background. Since I did not quilt on top of the pink or brown fabrics in the body of the quilt I was able to use a beige thread thoughout the body but did change to pink and brown thread to quilt the outside borders. I use a circle template to stitch the round center of the feathered wreath (then freehand the feathers around that circle) and the large round center of the sunflower which I filled with freehand "peebles" for the sunflower seeds. Hope you enjoy looking at Doris's quilt as much as I enjoyed quilting it.
