This crusty used to have the word USA embroidered in the middle. This year I decided that the buttons around the edge were too heavy for that, so I unstitched the floss and added more buttons instead.
I've never posted a photo of this quilt, Celebrate Liberty, before. I pieced it, Bonnie Hunter did the machine quilting.
That does say 4th of July 2001. I boobooed making the f and did it backwards, but left it that way. I like booboos, just wish it didn't look like an "07" with the European bar across the 7.

ScreamingLulu is a hoot. She's recently been sewing images and words using her machine with the feed dogs down. I guess that would be called machine embroidery. Anyway, you can never be sure what to expect when you visit, her current post being a prime example. I think this is my favorite.
