For my second entry this fall, please consider my recent finish, "Oh Say Can You See".
This quilt was a lesson in persistence. I started it almost a year ago by cutting charm squares and basting a few red hexies while waiting at my kids' afternoon activities. I got my first real push forward when I took a trip in January to visit my Gram and was able to reverse applique all the navy stars. Then, it was back to the slow grind. I finally finished this quilt a couple of weeks ago.
It was really difficult to photograph too. It's just so big!
Taking a photo inside just washed out the colors, but at least I could see all of it.
Finding a wall big enough was a challenge too. Here it is from a little further back. The dining room usually has a huge painting on this wall and a sofa underneath!
Fun right? I can't wait to bust this one out at a 4th of July BBQ next summer.
