    Here's what I've been working on for the last month. I saw this quilt at a local quilt show and decided to make a copy. I've made this quilt for my daughter and her husband's holiday auction. It's machine pieced and quilted except for a little 'big stitch' hand quilting around the stars.

    That is soooo GREAT, Yvonne. The blues are such a compliment to the flags. Makes me feel proud just looking at it! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    That's really wonderfu Yvonne. For a simple layout, that sure turns out stunning! You did a beautiful job on it. I would love to make one of these too. I have relatively nothing for the 4th in terms of decorating, and this would be just the thing!

    Thank you one and all. As Shelly mentioned in another space it means a lot to have these positive words. They encourage me to move on to the next project on the cutting table.
    Sara, there is no bigger compliment that having my work called a "real" quilt. I too was blown away by the international winners. My first thought was to go throw out all of my attempts at quilting! Reality check, please!!! Thanx!
    Lin, this is a pretty easy quilt to make. No pattern really needed! Go for it. It is satisfying and good practice (for me) in using lights/darks!
    Thank you all again.
    Now time to catch up on the B-O-twice a-M blocks.

    I loved how you used a medium now and then in both the light and dark strips Yvonne. It really catches the eye! I'll have to remember that when I go to make my own.

    That's really lovely Yvonne, so this is what has been keeping you out of trouble aye :D I like all the different blues you've used to create the background to the flags, gives it lots of movement like the flags are waving in the breeze. I'm sure your Husband and Daughter will be very proud to have this to offer for auction.

    Thank you all! You're words mean a lot and are most appreciated!

    I dropped that baby into the mail Monday so it's winging it's way to the east coast and should arrive there today. Keeping my fingers crossed that the USPS does it's thing!

    Yvonne:
    Your quilt is wonderful and some soldier is really going to love it, feel loved by it's warmth and feel the caring that went into it in the making of the quilt. I also like your label. It looks like the label printing my New Home 8000 does. Is that the machine you have?

    Great job and how thoughtful and special you are for making it for our military folks.

    Feathers,
    Thank you! I hope the quilt brings in lots of $$$ for their military families.

    The embroidery is all by hand. No machine here to do that work. :mrgreen:
