Veterans!–Open Line Friday

The Eagle-Free Motion Quilting

Good Morning, Quilters!

Veterans Day is tomorrow– a day dedicated to all who serve or have served in our military.

On June 4, 1926, Congress passed a resolution that the “recurring anniversary of [November 11, 1918] should be commemorated with thanksgiving and prayer and exercises designed to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding between nations,”

Today on Open Line Friday, please salute your favorite veterans by telling us about them.

If you are a veteran, tell us about what branch of the military you served or where you were stationed.

USA QuiltGood Morning, Quilters!

My daughters have been fighting over who gets the USA quilt – my 2014 Fourth of July Quilt.

To avoid family strife, I decided to make a second one…

So much better than “cutting the baby in half”!

MACHINE QUILTING THE USA QUILT

This is a quick and easy quilt–you can have it finished in one afternoon!

Start with a fat quarter quilt sandwich-this piece was 21 x 16 inches–anything close will work.

Draw  a one inch border (leaving a good margin for trimming and binding)

Stitch the outer border using The Easy Greek Key machine quilting motif.

Add the silhouette of the USA (or YOUR country’s outline)

Double stitch around the outline.

Add horizontal lines-one inch spacing.

Stitch with a wavy line and add stars.

Perfect!

Beautiful spacious skies!!!
