    Wink Patriotic quilt "Beautiful"

    I just finished this Patriotic quilt for a friend's sister. This is a panel and the added borders. I have this panel and Love it!!!!! I had fun putting lots of Patriotic designs on here. Some of them I purchased and some I made myself. I did outline the Eagle with it's feathers and ribbons. I also stitched in the ditch of each of the Lone stars with stippling all around that. I hope you enjoy her quilt. I used my HQ Sweet Sixteen with it's computer driven system. I love drawing in designs and using some beautiful ones I have purchased. Great fun!!!!!

    That is stunning, and your quilting is exquisite and sets off the piecing beautifully.

    Love how a panel can become a beautiful quilt with some creativity and wonderful quilting techniques. Beautiful quilt. Just in time for the holiday. And, you'll get to use it for July 4th as well. Thanks for sharing.

    You did a super job on your quilt! The quilting is awesome and I think the back is as pretty as the front.
