Those Autumn Leaves are still falling

Such fun working with autumn leaves. I shall continue to tell you to save the leaves to use for quilting. There are so many things we can do with God's nature found just outside your window. Thought you'd like to view one of these blocks up close to see the details of the satin stitching and quilting.

My Admiral Quilt

Some of you have just seen a picture of My Admiral quilt that I made a few years ago. It is truly one of my "treasures" to pass down to family in years to come. It is "priceless" as the items sewn onto the quilt can never be duplicated. I promised to show you the back of the quilt. It has a pic. of My Admiral.....and a folder that has his entire career printed on it and folded onto the back of the quilt. It has a "legend" that tells the origin of each squadron patch on the front of the quilt. This type of thing is necessary on this kind of quilt, as in years to come, it will be harder to trace the meaning of some of the patches. I shall be putting the front of the quilt onto this blog in a few weeks. It is a difficult quilt to photograph as it is so very large.
