Quilted Uncle Sam

This project has come together so fast!

Today I did all of the machine quilting for my Uncle Sam wall hanging. I ended up doing echo quilting around Sam and all of the stars and echo quilting inside the red zig-zag border and the blue banded border.

Here's the whole thing with the binding stitched on the front for me to hand stitch later tonight:


Here's a close up of the two inner borders:


Here's a picture of the back on one of the corners:


Here's the backing (yay for pieced backings and using stuff from your stash!) with the hanging sleeve sewed on.


Thanks for all the input, ladies!

(Also, this is a little ways off, but I'll be looking for a few guest posters between October 10th-October 20th while I'm off getting married and honeymooning. So think on it for a while and I'll put a "formal" call out in a few weeks!)
