    I posted yesterday about needing help w a wall hanging for my father for fathers day...Well, i didn't take anyone's advice about the faux piping cause i really wanted to get it done and i really have no clue what that entails LOL, but i definitely will look into playing with that.,

    Also after several passes at the border, i decided to leave the flag one on the font, it really seemed too blah when it wasn't there. So here it is :-) I don't think it came out that bad and I hope he loves it....I wanted to make him something patriotic. Do you think it is???

    Thanks

    It looks great. The white really looks clean and crisp, and I love the flag border.

    Taiboo, I think he will love it, and right Made in the Good Ole USA. If he doesn't like it for some reason, give me a holler and I will take it off of your hands. I love American themes. You did a fantastic job on the stars. Beautiful quilt. Hooray for you for wanting something patriotic, wish more people felt that way.
