A couple of weeks ago I shared some of the amazing versions of this years’ mystery quilt. As a member of the Johnson County Quilt Guild for a few years now, I can say that each year these get more exciting. One such quilt I call Patriotic Mystery. A Debbie Emerson creation, and it was a joy to put on my long arm.
It was very appropriate that the long arm quilting on this was completed on the evening of 9-11. As I worked on it, I thought about the fabrics and how they were so appropriate and beautiful.
The Air Force themed fabrics made me think of my son who was a member of that branch. My sweet boy dedicated so much of himself to keep us all safe. I am very proud of him.
The back of the quilt was also patriotic as you can see by the stripes and stars.
Edge to Edge Quilting – Freedom
I chose “Freedom”, an edge to edge pattern that is full of stars and stripes. I love the way it moves across the front of this Patriotic Mystery quilt.
This was a perfect quilt to complete on this day and I loved the way it turned out.
You can also look forward to seeing many more Patriotic quilts to come as I have a bunch I am doing for QOV. I love donating my time and talent to this amazing organization through the different guilds throughout our wonderful state of Texas.
