Several people commented on my Eagle quilt so I thought I'd review this quilt that I finished in 2008.
It's called "Obama For President" but I had to change that to "Olympic Eagle" (to be non-political) for the Vermont Quilt Show. It is, to this day, the only eagle quilt I know featuring black eagles. I named the quilt just after he spoke at the democratic convention...
It's a pattern from "antique quilts and how to make them".
I started it during the opening ceremonies of the winter olympics in Turin, Italy. Another commemorative quilt? yep. I guess it's one of my thangs.
I put an Olympic ring in each of the beaks and one of his tallons.
Here is a photo of me at the Vermont Quilt Show, 2008. It was awarded a blue ribbon - very exciting!
So, what am I up to?
A little (more) of this-
And some of these-
And finally, how fun is this? Beth is having a pincushion parade! My pincushion cup runneth over! Thank you to all my friends who have contributed to this collection.
Have a fun week!
