to tell the truth

i am proud to be an American ... i've never been a flag waver - but i have accepted my responsibilities and performed my duties - some more willingly than others -as Joetta Citizen...

anywho ... on monday night i placed the final few stitches on this quilt for Auntia...
red, white & blue - and tigger, too ... Auntia's picnic quilt finally has the binding on it - woo hoo!!!
during the commercial breaks of Lie to Me ... this is a Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt that i started a looooong time ago ... it is for Auntia's fireworks-watching on the Fourth of July ... it was supposed to be done for this year (okay ... okay ... OKAY ... since i'm telling the truth - it was really supposed to be finished for last year's fireworks display) but i fiddle-farted around and didn't finish it in time ... i quilted fireworks on each of the star blocks and then i did some stitch-in-the-ditching ... i should have spent a bit more time with it (i will not be showing the back of it cuz there are lottsa puckers and wrinkles) - but i was weary of having it stare at me for the past two years ... not one of my better efforts ... but it is finished ... and i will be happy to see it leave my room and take up residence in hers...

That looks like a nice easy pattern and a good way to use scraps!
