    I have been keeping this one quiet for sometime saving it for the day I entered it in the county fair. I designed it myself and handquilted it. What do you think? I quilted the eagle with shield, statue of liberty, the liberty bell on the bottom and appliqued a copy of the star spangled banner and the preamble to the constitution on it. I can't really take a good photo of it but would appreciate any comments on how I can improve on the next one.

    Improve on the next one? Umm.....hmmm.....I don't see where you can improve. I think it's perfect. But, if you REALLY want to improve it, just send it to me! :) :)

    Thanks for all the compliments. I am adding more pictures since I cut the bottom off the other. Just couldn't load all of them the first time.

    Wow--that is fantastic. Your work is beautiful. I agree-if you don't win, I can't wait to see what quilt does. I've never seen anything like that-thanks for sharing your pictures. Good luck (although I don't think you need it).

    I'm going to a country fair near us this weekend - I sure hope it's the one where your quilt is entered, because I would love to see it in person! Please let us know how many prizes you win!

    I will be sure to let you know how it comes out. I probably won't know anything until about Thursday. Just keep your fingers crossed for me. The best I've ever done on a quilt is third place so I am hoping this is the one that will bring home the Blue. Anyway thanks for all the encourgement. I have seen some of the best quilts on this QB that at any show or fair by far so I consider you guys my panel of experts. Thanks, I'm proud to be a part of this forum.
