Flags of the American Revolution

A group of quilters are sewing along with Lori from Humble Quilts to make the quilt Flags of the American Revolution from the book with the same name.


The first installment was to be the eagle.   I did manage to get the eagle stitched but not the setting triangles and stars.


I am linking up with Lori.  She is showing some great pictures of what others have made.   It’s always fun to sew along with others and see how they interpret the pattern.
Happy stitching,
Nancy

  2. Nice eagle - I also have a little catching up to do. It's fun to see all the different eagle interpretations. By the way, I like the self portrait (I assume that's what it is!) on your profile thumbnail!

  9. Great start! I'm a little behind already, which is usual for me :), but enjoying it already! Can't wait to see everyone's work!

  10. I love your eagle, Nancy! There's something so appealing to me aesthetically about the folk style depictions of plants and animals found on antique quilts as opposed to the way modern designers usually attempt to make their applique look as realistic as possible. Both styles have merit, of course, but I personally prefer that antique look -- and you have captured that so well.
