This great old quilt doesn't have one flag in it, but because we are working on our center eagle I'd share this photo from the quilt index.
Anna Catherine Hummel Markey Garnhart was known to have made at least 11 quilts including a crib quilt, a quilt owned by the Pioneer Museum in Oklahoma, and one still in a private collection. She lived her entire life in Frederick County, Maryland.
The month is winding down. How are you coming on your center eagle? Several of you have done the stars around the eagle too- no problem, I'll start mine soon. I do plan on putting 13 stars instead of 12 for the 13 original American Colonies.
If you are sewing along and do not have a blog send me a photo and I'll post it here. If you have a blog, post your eagle center on Sept 1st. I thought Monday the 1st would be a great day to reveal our first month's work.
I have a photo of Terry's block and DarLynn's block.
Happy Tuesday! Fall is in the air here in Central Oregon. I'm having to wait for it to warm up a bit before going out on my early morning run. I'm always sad to see summer go, but this year I'm looking forward to fall more than usual.
