All fifteen stars are stitched to the blue canton!
Two weeks…..
Sixty official volunteers……
At least 100 appliquérs in all…..
Estimated 20,000 appliqué stitches!
Kristen took the last stitch and we celebrated!


And I just had to add this photo of me…..stars are done! Happy me!


Tomorrow we start to sew the star field to the short stripes!

It’s great fun to celebrate!

  1. Mimi it was a fantastic day. I am honored to just be in the room with all of you. Not sure what I will ever find to compare to the pride I feel over this project, or things to do on Wednesdays and Fridays.
