July 4th

Hi everyone! I was so tired on the 4th but I just had to show you my progress. I am missing two little squares that I have to find the fabric in my stash ( or something similar). All the diamond blocks are sewn in now. I just have a good 50 horizontal seams I will sew by machine. I was thinking of adding a good 6 to 8 inch border. I was thinking of doing ties in the center and hand or machine quilting the wider border. I wanted to put a brushed flannel on the back and I’ve traced all the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren’s hands and I am going to machine embroider them around the perimeter of the backing fabric. This then goes to my mom, Grandma Mary Lou who just celebrated her 85th birthday two weeks ago.
