American Flag Quilt

I love this quilt...its the first flag quilt I've seen made this way and I think it is just so cool!!!

Joyce made this using a variety of reds and yet kept the blue consistent. That combination and the stark white between the rows just made it pop.  When I was deciding how to quilt this one, I was stumped on what to do in the white rows.  I knew I wanted to SID all the blocks, so I did that first and then stared at it for awhile.  I finally decided on this simple design hoping it would direct your eye to Joyce's wonderful piecing.

 I thought this was a great touch, a cross-stitched flag!

No pics of the was a busy blue with lots of stars.
