Stars and Strips FINISHED

Tammy came over and we quilted this one today and after she left I sewed the binding on the first side and hand stitched it, and the sleeve down, while watching the Food Network Challenges and the Olympic Closing Ceremonies. I did the stitch-in-the ditch and the wavy lines and she did the meandering.

This quilt will be in the auction at the Blue Star Mothers Freedom Festival in Crawfordsville, IN on Saturday, September 6th.

YEA - Another UFO finished! Here's Dan and Tammy:
