Daniel's Flag Quilt

Well, here is the first of the twin's quilts, I added extra blocks and four borders to make it fit a twin size bed- it measures about 78"x93".

Quilted with freehand Baptist Fan, the thread is a light tan so the quilting is subtle and the block design is the star!

It is even labeled, I applied the label before quilting so it's good and secure. I can't wait to see his face and help him put it on his bed!

The backing was a real deal at Bernina Connection Summer Sale, 75% off, and a nice flag design, a CW repro. I do need to launder the quilt with Synthrapol and Color Catchers, because I had half the blocks made when I realized that one of the reds is a batik and they throw dye like crazy.

Daniel's sister's Pleiades quilt is on the LA ready to quilt. I hope to start on that tonight, still haven't positively decided on a quilting design for it.

You just keep cranking them out and they are awesome!! I hope the kids treasure them and are able to pass them down to their own children some day.

Love your red, white, and blue quilt and the message on it. Beautiful work. I sew so I know how much work this is.
