Quitler's Progress

This is the reason that I didn't do any blogging last week. In the past 10 or so days I have put several rows on the quilt. I'm enjoying the process and it's so nice to see it slowly growing larger and larger. It's a sort of small sense of accomplishment each time a row is completed.
I only have four rows left to put on and it will be ready for the back! I'm looking forward to sitting down and quilting it- I suppose I shall imagine that I am Besty Ross sewing together the American flag (it will make me feel more important!).

Very beautiful work, Amanda. What love and patience has gone into it. I know they will treasure it.

You are doing a great job. But I think you should imagine that you are a pioneer woman while quilting, Betsy Ross was a myth created by her family to create revenue.

That quilt is amazing Amanda! I love the way the different shades of blue sort of fade into each other when you look at it from a distance. Keep up the good work! (And don't forget to post more pictures when you're finished!) :)
