Finished Frenzy!!!

I actually finished the Patriotic Frenzy Quilt!  You know - the one I started 10 years ago?  To.  The.  Month.  Whew!  Am I fast or what?!?

Yeah, OK.  But I did finish, so I'm thrilled!  Here it is, laid out on the dining room table:


How about some close ups?  Remember, a piece of BDU fabric from my husband's old uniforms is at the center of each block!


The rest of the fabrics are all patriotic or US military-themed.  This is quite possibly my favorite corner - and it was totally unplanned!


One of my favorite fabs:

"... one nation under God ..."
I'm very pleased with how the quilting turned out!


Here is a look at the back:


I wanted to set it somewhere near natural daylight for a nice shot. This ottoman seemed like a cozy, inviting place:


(For those of you who read the Army of Four Digest, please check out Maggie's take on "cozy and inviting".)

And yes, when I set it out on the floor to try to shoot the whole quilt ...

Maggie and Cam
Oh, how I love those two!!!

I washed it and now it looks even better.

It feels so good to have finished this!  Thanks so much for reading!


  1. I truly love this quilt of yours, the patriotic theme, a piece of your husband's uniform in each block, the design, the binding, the back, ok, the whole piece!!!:-)Fantastic job! Maggie and Cammie do look pretty nice on it! Once again, thank you for sharing!

    Take care,

  2. The front is so beautiful and so special and I love the backing too! The girls show it off well!

  3. What a beautiful quilt! And it looks even better when you have those canine models to really show it off.
