Eagle's Flight


In January, Alycia posted a photo of this panel, and I commented on how attractive it was. Alycia and I decided to swap panels, and I was amazed at the beauty of these eagles when I opened the package from her.

The panel is large, and I pondered how to feature it in a quilt. Did it need other blocks around it? Should it be off-set on the top? Finally, I decided the panel was too lovely to have other elements create a distraction around it. I allowed it to shine on its own.


Eagle's Flight is #10 in the twelve Quilts of Valor in 2012 challenge. Thank you, Alycia for this awesome panel.
