I have been working in earnest on my president's quilt lately. I'm very close to being done with the quilting. I decided to do a fan-like free motion design in the blocks themselves, with a leafy vine in the green sashing strips.
I had a bit of trouble with my machine, so I haven't been working on it steadily, but I've kept at it. It is so enjoyable to work on it. Each square has the name of the person who sewed it, so as I quilt each square I think about that person fondly. I appreciate the particular fabric they used to go with my blue print. Very fun.
