Let Freedom Ring

What is it?

A quilt of course, but what does it look like?  A patriotic quilt!  This quilt will be making its debut for the Southern California Quilt Run.  It will be on display at Bolts in the Bathtub.  The panels and kits are available in the store or by phone order at this time.

This is one of my newest patterns.  The patterns is available on my website:  NeedleinaHayesStack.blogspot.biz.

The picture above is the quilt at the stage of needing binding.  My binding buddy, Dawna (from Stitches from the Tub) takes care of most of my bindings!  Gotta love that in a buddy!

The picture below is the EQ7 generated version of this quilt.

I knew I liked this quilt, but it wasn’t until it came back from the quilter, Vickie Wall, that I fell in love with this one!

The quilting is great!

She not only does a fabulous job of quilting, but the density of quilting is perfect and the designs she picks to quilt with are always just the right pattern.

The fabric line is Freedoms Star from Henry Glass.  The panel has the flag which I placed in the center.  there are other designs on the panel, those are in the center of the unusual log cabins and the centers of the stars.

The piecing was done by Karen Heins!  She is a wonderful quilt maker.  She has only been quilting a couple of years, but her attention to detail is great.  DSC05995

Just a couple more photos to give you more eye candy.DSC05997

My photography is not my strongest point.  I am trying to get better.  Always striving for improvement!  Not just in the photos, but in my designing and all other aspects of life as well.

So much to do, so little time…

Blog at you later,
