Freedom!

Freedom from one more UFO hanging over my head. And also, yeah, it's a patriotic quilt. Kinda thinking I'll just call it Freedom.
If you haven't heard me say this before, I LOVE patriotic quilts. I saw this one in a quilting book (can't remember the name or FIND it at the moment -- sewing room is still not completely put back together). I started it a LONG time ago. I had an older friend who would give me fabric all the time when I was first starting out quilting. This quilt is made entirely from scraps from her scrap pile. I think even the white is. I did go buy this lovely toile for the back -- I think it's depicting scenes from the Revolutionary War.

It is already keeping us warm. It's on my UFO Challenge list (see sidebar), so whenever that month comes, I'll be ahead of the game. I think I have turned over a new leaf around here. Maybe. :)
