The Patriotic Folk Animals Quilt is complete. I took it outside this morning to get some pictures in our light dusting of snow. I really like the effect of the quilting on the neutral blocks of the flag stripes. I used my ruler to give it a fun texture. (The 3D dog's ear is flipped up in this photo.)

Patriotic Folk Animals Quilt
I did not do an edge-to-edge design on this one -- surprisingly. I experimented with a template in the corners, waving lines, straight lines, ruler work in the neutral pieces of the stripes in the stars, stippling, stars & loopys, and outlines. I'm happy with it. It finishes at
Here's the pieced back. The center blocks were pieced cheater blocks that were in a scrap bag that a friend gave to me earlier this year. I purposely tried to not center it on the back.
First it was inspected by Newman. He did not walk on the quilt.
Next, Cooper came by to check it out -- but did not walk on the quilt.
Newman comes back for another look and struts away... I wonder if he is wondering if I am going to add button eyes to the animals. I don't think so at this point. I like it as it is.
Next Newman, Cooper, and Ezra have a meeting. It seems that they deemed the quilt unsafe to walk upon. They did not give me their approval. I guess they won't make it into the Pets on Quilts show.
This quilt measures 55" x 61". I carried it with me in my sew-to-go bag for a fun embroidery and applique project. The pattern for Patriotic Folk Animals can be found in the book, AMERICANA QUILTS, by Sandy Bonsib.
