Show Your WIngs Blog Hop - American Style

It is been awhile since I 
was able to join a fun blog, 
 seemed like the 
perfect time to do so.

I have a few blocks lying
around that needed to make themselves
into a quilt.

My Uncle Sam nutcracker
has been wanting a home
since the last blog hop 
I was able to participate in.

But he doesn't have wings.

I did decide a few months after him 
to make an eagle applique.
He definitely fit the bill 
of having wings
and this hop was about showing 
off your wings.

So, I added them together.

Well, that was at 4 pm on February 20th.
I knew I want to do a bit more to it.

After deciding, I went ahead
and added a friend  to 
keep Mr. Uncle Sam company.

Lady Liberty!! 

Let's just say I stayed up
WAYYY past my bedtime
to add a few more blocks and 
a border.

I don't think the light of a
candle does much 
for a quilt picture, so in 
the next few hours I 
will take another photo of it.
For now I am 
blowing out the candle and headed 
for bed.

I hope you enjoyed stopping in. 

Check out all the amazing bloggers who are participating:
