Finale Sweet Land of Liberty

Finished! Færdig! Fini! Fertig!Befejezett! Ferdig!Terminado!
I'm so happy to say this quilt is complete! Actually I want to add a couple of eyes- One to the fish and one to the red bird. But other than that, it is quilted and bound!
Here's a sunshiney view of the fan quilting that Diane did for me. Someone else did theirs with fans and I thought it looked great so that is what I did too.

Here are a few close ups of the different sections.

In the sunlight the quilting looks like it is competing with the top. 

Indoors it isn't that way at all! I'm using on my couch right now and it is very soft.
I generally don't have large enough pieces for the backing, but this worked out good.
Here are a few close ups of the patriotic fabric.  All of the light colored strips on the side came from my friend Jill's fabric stash after she passed away. I treasure those pieces!!

The flag binding came from her stash too.
With a quilt that has so many reds, I throw in a few color catchers.
Looks like they did their job!
Here's my label. We had a conversation about labels on the facebook group. If you are on facebook, please join and contribute! It's a happy place to be. 

Now I want to see your Liberty quilt- yours does not need to be complete! If you have been working on it and haven't shared it yet, we want to see! Yes we do.
