  1. D > And that, in case you’re wondering, is the Stars and Stripes – the flag of the United States of America’. Well, glad that’s been cleared up! ;~) Seriously, though, the Friendship quilt is absolutely awesomely gorgeous and amazing. I would be so SO proud to have done anything as wonderfully excecuted as that. BTW, is that a signature I can see embroidered onto it?

    • treadlemusic says:

      Yes, that is a signature. This quilt was done by members of this guild many years ago. A person (Barb, in this case) chooses a block pattern, determines color preferences/fabric, etc and gives copies of such to the members of the group. Each person then makes the block (either from fabric included with the pattern or from their “stash”) AND signs their name to the block. Many who had made this quilt (called “Storm at Sea” pattern) have passed away so this is extra special to Barb. Thanks so much for asking and I hope this answers your questions. Hugs…….

      Hello, Karen!! We are in Minnesota (Southeast corner) during the summer months but am sure watching what’s going on!! Kinda thought north Harlingen was sorta removed from such weather. We’ll see how much rain we end up with (looks like 6″-8″ at this point). Appreciate your sweet concern….hugs……..
