The Patriotic quilt has been quilted and a volunteer is binding it. We hand quilted all the stars at the Fourth of July Celebration (the quilting bee!) and machine quilted the remainder.
Here is a closeup before trimming the sides to prepare for binding.
Detail of the hand quilting
The unbound quilt. The binding is the red and white stripe. The photo does not show the stars quilted in the red squares, but you can see them in the first photo.
Soon it will have a home with a deserving veteran!
