Jim is a retired Marine who entered the business world many years ago. He is a very patriotic man who loves his country, his God, and his family. I have worked for Jim directly or indirectly for 19 of my 26 years since High School.
I have learned more than I can even begin to tell you while working on this quilt. It has been a learning experience. It has been a major pain in the neck. (Literally, as I had to cut and re-cut so many triangles and squares.) But it has also given me great Joy, and a huge sense of accomplishment. This is the largest quilt I have done thus far, and large quilts no longer scare me. I have realized the importance of fabric choice and color matching. There are 29 different fabrics in this quilt. It took a long time to find them all, but it was time well spent.
So, here it is, "Stars and Stripes" FINISH number two this week!!
|My shadow makes this look smaller than it is! It is 80x80.|
|Again, same colored thread means the quilting isn't too pronounced,|
however, you can see that this thing has a LOT of quilting on it.
|The Binding that you might think was custom ordered for this quilt!|
It took me several weeks to find it, but I nearly jumped for joy when I
did, as it is perfect for this quilt!!
Until Next Time,
