The first one was a panel with some scenes from George Washington's time--at least I think it was supposed to be George.
The panel was really simple, but with that gold in it I had to add some gold quilting; therefore, you get gold feathers. I also used my swag template for the borders--tried to make them look old fashioned.
And a picture of the back! I love plain backs; the quilting really shows up.
This one is more traditional with some pieced blocks as well as patriotic panels.

And this is the smaller "panel" that I quilted a traditional feather pattern on. I was initially going to try to do something more intricate, but after pondering and talking with Paula, we decided a feather was the way to go. What do you think?
And finally, a couple of shots of the back. First the entire back.
And a close-up of a small section.
Thanks for stopping by! And although I don't say it often, I really do appreciate and try to respond to all your comments.
