Red, White and Blue Finish

 In the beginning of 2022 I told myself that I was
going to work through as many kits and projects 
that had not been started or finished on my
"Shelf of Shame" in my hidey hole.

One of the first things I worked on was a red, white and blue kit
that I had purchased a number of years ago.
The quilt top was finished pretty quickly and then it sat.
And sat and sat.

Now I can say it is finished!

Flying Geese are one of my favorite quilting designs,
so this design was a fun one for me.

I quilted it with straight lines and stitching in the ditch...
fast and easy.

This photo looks like the geese are taking off in flight! 

This morning my daughter told me of an Air Force
officer who, at the age of 46, didn't wake up one morning,
leaving a wife and four small children.
She asked if I would like to donate this quilt to them.
What a great idea.
This will be on it's way soon.
Hug your loved ones tightly today.
Happy Quilting!

Ramona, you are really churning out the finishes! I share your feelings of such accomplishments. I really love the looks of this patriotic quilt. The design and the fabric colors layout. You must have heard my ooooing and aahhhing as soon as your post loaded. LOL. Such a sad story of the serviceman and his family. Your heartfelt gift will mean so much to them.

I don't mind making geese either, especially with my Accuquilt or the Fon's and Porter ruler. So sweet of you to give the airforce wife a quilty hug.

Stunning RWB quilt. That is a terrific design. I have a "drawer of shame" full of kits too. I try to pull out one each month to work on, and it has helped pare them down a little bit. Lots to do yet however.

Stunning quilt and it's going to a perfect home. I'm so sorry for that family.
