Ricks quilt


This quilt is for Rick. He's serving our country this year, overseas. I cut out this fabric back in January in hopes to finish it before he left in feb. (then you remember I went home to Seattle and then got knocked up. Not good for making quilts, or making anything but a baby!)

So this quilt got put in a drawer. Well he is home on leave for like 5seconds so I had to hurry and finish this bad boy up!
I wasn't planning on the cowboys being the blue on the flag side. I had some star fabric that was perfect but it grew legs and walked. I have no idea where but it did.
The back was suppose to have more detailed star with white and blue big star but I used the blue for the flag so it had some changes but I think it worked well.
I asked lindsy, his wife, to have her and their kids write a saying and trace their hands so I could quilt it into the quilt. Well the handprints didn't look good so they got cut but the sayings are hidden in the quilting.

I hope he enjoys it. He definitely deserves it..

Wow, that is a wonderful gift! My husband is ultra patriotic so I have thought about making a flag for him.

What a lovely quilt, Krista!
I clearly and easily recognize the flag, so the walking fabric need not return :D
