American Spirit

American Spirit
60 x 70 inches
QOV #131
February 2018
The center of American Spirit is one of the patriotic napkins I purchased at a quilt silent auction in 2017.  Because of the bold contrasting colors, the quilt has a distinct Native American tone.

I adapted the design from a pattern called Flannel Roses (pages 28 - 30) in Evelyn Sloppy's book, Sew One and You're Done.

One of my UFO challenge goals for this month is to make Quilts of Valor from the napkins.

  2. I like how the tan edging almost looks like leather.

  6. So striking. I love the pop that the yellow brings to this. It really does remind me of a Native American design. Just lovely - well done!
