    I have to laugh when you ask me about the lettering. Not knowing what I was doing and first try at free motion, I used the angled zig zag stitch and just followed the lines i wrote. Not great looking close up but looks pretty good from far away. The eagle was done the same way. Just went over the area several times to get the thickness of the stitch I was looking for. Thanks for all the great comments.

    yes, i have made several lap throws that i just tied together but this the first real quilt I have made and quilted. It really was not hard. it was a class I took from a shop in Mooresville nc. I am sure you can purchase the instructions from them. Quilter's Loft.
