Sue's Eagle

patriotic panel embroidered by Sue O.
August 2017
Sue O. gave me the eagle panel for a Quilt of Valor, and I pondered a design that would complement and showcase Sue's work.


I searched for patterns online and in magazines, and finally found something that I thought would work in Evelyn Sloppy's Sew One and You're Done book. I sketched the design, calculated the measurements, cut the fabric, and started sewing.

Quilt of Valor
58 x 70 inches
I love how it looks and how the eye is drawn into the center panel. Sue, thank you for making this Quilt of Valor possible.

Sue's Eagle is Quilt of Valor #121
