The Eagle-Free Motion Quilting

Happy Fourth of July!  One of my favorite holidays.

The Eagle-Free Motion Quilting

The day would not be complete without Ray Charles singing America, The Beautiful

The Eagle-Free Motion Quilting

 The Eagle (20″ square) was stitched on Robert Kaufman “Riviera” Kona cotton with Aurifil cotton 50 wt in the bobbin and Sulky Rayon on top on my Bernina 820 without a stitch regulator.

The Eagle is part of The Patriot Series:  USA and Flag, Anchor and Star -yesterday…

Wishing YOU all the joys and blessings of this summer holiday,

  1. Wonderful! Happy Fourth of July to you too Lori! I visited Dora’s blog, unbeknownst she was a followers too, and thought “how Lori Kennedy” inspired her wall hanging was!! Hugs, Allison in Plano TX

  2. Happy 4th of July from the capitol city of SD!!! Love everything you do and especially the eagle. I aspire to reach your level of free motion and every thing you do is another step in that direction. Thanks tremendously!!

  3. Is it just my computer, as I’m wondering why the June calendar is still being shown on the right side of the blog. Oh, BTW, Happy July 4th; I celebrated a great Canada Day, July 1st, earlier this week. Have fun y’all.

  4. Wow! Lori, today’s eagle is very beautiful! Thank you. Happy 4th of July! May not one life be lost in defense of our freedoms today.

  5. I’m wondering if you have a pattern for these patriotic blocks, or if they are wholecloth? I would love to have the pattern at least the outline,.

    • Hi Doreen, I was planning on turning these into a pattern for sale…which ones are you most interested?

      • They are all beautiful! I make quilts for our servicemen. And thought these would make a beautiful one. If I had to choose I’d pick the eagle.

We'd LOVE to hear! Please reply...
