My little Patriotic quilts are stacking up. I think it's time for them to go off and be quilted! I was considering quilting the smaller ones myself, but I am so much happier with the results when I send them out to be done professionally.
This one, "Faithful", may be my favorite. It turned out nice and narrow (18"), and will fit perfectly on my front hall table. I sure had to wait for that border fabric, but got it eventually. I have to say that I sure do appreciate it when shops cut and send you your order within a couple of days. I keep a mental list of those who drag their heels and take forever, and think twice about reordering from them unless I am desperate.
Another red, cream and blue table topper. "Recess". I used lots of scraps for this one, so I feel like it was a "free" quilt. That's what I am telling myself anyway.
Thanks for all the moral support yesterday. The vast majority of comments I get are friendly and positive. Every now and then though, I get one that makes me scratch my head and think "Some people...." Truthfully, I think the issue is miscommunication. A few individuals just do not read carefully or completely and jump to all sorts of wrong conclusions. I enjoy my interactions with all of you way too much to stop blogging!
