The Freedom Quilt


I didn’t get much sewing done this weekend. I worked on getting a few more pinwheels done for my daughter’s quilt and that was it. Middle child had a high school basketball game and our girl’s basketball sectional was going on, so we kept busy. Basketball is big business in Indiana!
We received some not so happy news last week. Our oldest son is attending college on a baseball scholarship. He has a tear in his rotator cuff that will need surgery to repair it. So this means we will redshirt this year and add another year to the original 4 year plan. It is such a little thing to most but a big deal to him, and mom and dad are loving the scholarship so we want to see this healed!
In honor of the big V day tomorrow I am showing the red and white quilt I made for his high school graduation.

Beautiful freedom quilt. Is your son a pitcher? Seems like so many of them tear their rotator cuffs. I sure hope his surgery goes well.

Wow, that is a classy looking quilt. Love the border with the star flowers. Please tell me that he loves it and treats it carefully. Hope he heals up quick.

What a great quilt. 9-patches - my fav. I love your border with the stars it's elegant and not too formal all at once - beautiful!

Beautiful quilt...I'm sure your son appreciates it! I hope his rotator cuff heals quickly, he must be so disappointed to be missing a season.

Oh another of one of my favorite quilts of yours! I've always wanted to do a 2 color quilt and never start one. Maybe I should do one now! I love this one and always wanted to do this 9-patch setting - hmmmmmm......

Laura this quilt is just gawjus!!!! I am really inspired by the two-colour quilts I'm seeing around the web. They are just so stunning. Your son is very lucky! (Apart from the rotator cuff).
