Patriotic Quilt Top/ Happy Veterans Day

patriotic quilt
This quilt is a collection of two 4th of July swaps and three different embroidery/signature block swaps. One swap for quilt blocks was over 6 years ago for all star blocks in a patriotic fabrics. They are six-inch blocks to which I had to add a boarder to make them work with the other blocks. The next swap was what felt like the never ending signature swap; it ended after the second signature swap did and after the second block swap ended. The last signature block I got about two weeks ago from an on-going block swap over on MJF. The last five blank blocks are for my family members: one for each kid, husband and self. I will embroider on them later after they each have picked a picture. I am sure it will be a butterfly, lady bug, fairy for the kids; a peace dove for me; and haven't got a clue what my husband will pick for me to embroider. Even though these blocks where not originally intended to make one quilt, I think they came out fine together. This is a twin size quilt. I probably won't get this quilted in the near future, but at least it is out of block stage. The spacer blocks have writing on them; I am sure you cannot read it, but it is the pledge of allegiance written over and over again.

What you cannot see in this photo is me and my 6-year-old daughter standing on the stairs trying to hold this up while my husband takes the photo. Those little hands on the top left of the photo are hers. It was funny because as she was standing on her tip toes trying to hold it as high as she could without falling over, she was wobbling all over the place.
