This is a machine embroidery project I loaded onto the long arm. Maybe I will quilt a feathered circle around the main embroidery or some cross hatching. I haven't quite decided, so each time I pass by the frame I think maybe this motif, maybe that design--
The Patriot's Dream stitching is all finished with the exception of the applique stars down in the bottom section and the blue border than needs to be sewn on. I can't find the original blue fabric in my stash, so I'm off to the local quilt shop to see if I can find a good match. It feels so good to have all the stitching completed!
This picture is looking out across the back yard into the woods from our house. The Japanese Maples are just turning color, and are so pretty.
