3. IN GOD WE TRUST in cross stitch
4. a punched tin lantern
and the list goes on. . . . . . . .
Here is a link to my pinterest board to see some of the other ideas.
I ended up putting the hand with the heart in the palm (from the top border) instead of the freedom angel.
I misplaced the papers that had the fish block and the remembrance embroidery so I came up with a little basket of fruit that says "land of plenty".
I've been looking through a lot of my old quilting magazines to try and come up with an idea for the ADHOC IMPOV Challenge of maps when I accidentally came across a pattern for a trumpet. I left the valves off so it would look like a bugle. Perfect for the fairy angel block. A bugle is as patriotic as a fish don't you think? VBG
I just pinned that bow on there for the time being. I'll replace it with something permanent in another color.
I'll add the word Freedom from the freedom angel block across another section of the quilt.
I think I'm finished changing things. So on to getting my ducks in a row and finishing up this quilt top in the next few months.
|I also added the liberty bell on the snails trail blocks. It doesn't show up at all so I'll probably move it.|
I guess that's all,
