Thin Blue Line Quilt for Gabriel



This is the quilt I made for my son-in-law Gabriel.  He recently has left the police force to work in another field.  I had been working on it forever.  Doing the star-field greatly intimidated me.  I finally finished it ten o'clock on Christmas Eve.  Most quilts I have seen use a fabric pre-printed with stars.  I decided to sew each individual star on.  My husband, Tom, designed the quilt and made a perfect star-field layout for me to trace so each star would have a perfect placement.  We plan on working on quilts together after his retirement.  He will do the designing and I will do the sewing.


This is the tag on the back. 
It was ordered from Etsy.
