America the Beautiful in Flags
I was passed on this same panel as the panel in Long May She Wave quilt I had made before. I wanted to do something different. I thought of flags and floating stars. I just meander quilted it, with a regular domestic machine. I used the same star fabric in the flags, as on the side of the panel. I had to trim off the red and white on the sides to square the panel up, so I added the star fabric. Not the same as the top & bottom of the panel, but it worked. I used gold in the center stars to bring out the gold in the panel. Made up 63 x 84 and the backing is just like the background fabric, tan with navy stars. It will go to another veteran.
