Here's the finished First Amendment Quilt.
|The First Amendment Quilt, pattern self designed|
The First Amendment is printed in the center panel.
The panel was printed using the largest size printable fabric sheet I could find. This quilt was for Drama Teen's journalism teacher, so that seemed to be the most appropriate theme. The background fabric is a fake newsprint, which also seemed appropriate. Trudy Lindemann did a wonderful job on the quilting as always.
A chain of stars in the borders.
And loops in the star center.
The quilt was gifted yesterday during the end of the year journalism party. According to DT, Miss T loved the quilt. I got a very nice hug when I got home. Doesn't get much better than that in terms of being thanked.
The First Amendment quilt is my forth finish this year. Considering that I only finished 4 quilts in all of 2016 (the same for all of 2015) and it's not even June yet, this is looking to be one of my better years for finishes. I'd like to have a shorter WIP/UFO list for 2018. The First Amendment quilt was on my Second Quarter 2017 Finish Along list. It was number two on my list, so I'm halfway to my goal for the quarter. That's a good feeling too!
