Two Bad Ombres

After watching the presidential debates and hearing the line 

"We have some bad hombres and we're going to get them out"

I went straight to my stash and got out some ombres! I had to beg for a few more from my blog readers, but in this instance I didn't mind. Thank you!

 The stars in the sashing made it a little more patriotic. 
 I thought finishing it and posting on inauguration day was appropriate. (although I find the pomp and circumstance of the ceremony quite boring! no matter who is being sworn in)  I have so many little chunks of this presidents fabric I really didn't mind piecing the back on this tiny quilt.
 I wasn't keen on either candidate, so I'm calling this quilt "2 bad ombres"
 Here it is after washing. 
My instagram for this week. 
We have had a few sunny days, only minimal flooding at the business and we are ready for more wintery weather. 

Take care and have a wonderful weekend!

  23. What a great idea! It turned out wonderfully. I love a quilt with history and this one has it on day one of it's "life." Adorable!
