By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....

this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.

Veteran's Quilt Part 2

Sorry about the view of my toes....lol!!
I finished stitching down the eagle for the most part & decided to have a look at the other part of my project that spurred me to take this on in the first place. It's from a Bargello leftover. These days I don't throw anything away. After looking at the two together I knew it needed something. Mr. Cowboy strolled by & also noted that it needed something. So I decided to sleep on it. You know that things come to us quilters while we sleep.....hehehe!
After a couple of nights sleep I came up with the solution below.
I added a strip withe the words " Land of the Free" to divide the two. Mr. Cowboy was pleased & gave me two thumbs up.
All I need to do next is add a border. Stay tuned.
I saw this little funny on someone's blog & thought I'd re-share it.

Spot on. Isn't it great we can solve issues while sleeping. Sometimes I wake up in the night and find solutions to things I didn't even know I was looking for. Your project looks wonderful.

That's perfect. It looks wonderful. I chuckled at the cartoon too.

Shasta Matova said...

That is a great addition. The words really help tie together the two parts of the quilt. Love the chuckle too.

If I had more than 2 thumbs, I'd up 'em! That is a wonderful quilt, and the perfect solution with the two pieces. I love this one!

Don't count the days, make the days count!
