    Doris has another beauty!

    I forgot to ask Doris the name of this pattern. Seems like "Forty-Eight or Fight"? Please chip right in here and tell me if you know the pattern name. 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.

    Very pretty quilt! I love your quilting! Especially the pebbling!!

    Your thinking of the block "Fifty Four Forty or Fight" (named for the slogan used by Taft (?) during his campaign and the 'fight' for the parallel line with Canada). This block is similar, but 54-40 has a 4 patch in the four corners of the star.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
