The Flag Quilt Is Finished!!!

I finally finished my log cabin quilt (I designed myself!) that I started 9 years ago in 2002! It was one of my New Year's Resolutions, so I feel pretty stinkin' proud that I accomplished it before half the year was even out. Yipee! My son is the lucky kid that gets to have it on his bed. :-)

13 stars for the 13 original colonies. This quilt was kind of an homage to the old flag quilts women used to sew back in the day. They would always include a deliberate mistake so it was never an exact replica of the flag. I think my mistake is quite obvious... :-)


It's my first hand-stitched quilt. The stitches aren't perfect, the corners don't all match up, but I made it, so I love everything about it!

It looks awesome!! I love it. I made a goal back in 2000 to read the entire Bible got withing 100 pages and just never finished...for like 8 years. So I can definitely appreciate finally finishing a goal you started years ago! :)

(For the record, I actually read the NT first, so the last 100 pages were OT stuff. I probably would have finished sooner if it had been the NT.)

Looks great Sarah! I know how good it feels to check something that big off the 'to do' list.

I can't really tell from the picture, but is it a twin bed size quilt? Your stitches are so very neat and tidy--good job!
