    Shooting/Gun Related Quilt

    This was suppose to be my christmas present, last year. When it is finished it is going to be a thick winter blanket. It is roughly 4x8 now and will be 6x8 (more to wrap up in) when it is done. She decided to show me at the first of winter so I'll have it for the cold nights that she is away at school.

    I just had to brag. Anyone from the EKY M&G knows I have a beautiful girlfriend, but she is also handy. All this is hand embroidered.

    The iPhone doesn't take very good pictures, so these are poor quality pictures of a work of art.

    I think I fixed it, hope they work now. I don't know why it deleted them.


    Half of all the blocks are quotes, most of the rest are targets that her and I have had and the rest are logos or symbols (S&W, AR/AK).

    You'll notice a pumpkin (we tried to carve one from 150yds), a 300yd watermelon and spray paint cans that we used to paint "Bert". We have fun with high power rifles.

    If anyone has questions, feel free to ask.

    I was soo excited about my quilt that I had to share.

    We all speak of liberty and freedom like we are the only ones that know the truth and the right path. But if we expect everyone to accept and follow our path and to accept our truth and want to force it upon them then that is no longer liberty or freedom. It is slavery. I believe in liberty for all. Regardless of their political views, religion, race, sex, etc.

    The OP and others should check their general settings - see top right of any page.

    Look for:

    Enhanced Attachment Uploading:
    • Enhanced Attachment Uploading on
    • Enhanced Attachment Uploading off

    The forum features an enhanced attachment uploading system that allows you to reuse existing attachments via a drag and drop interface.

    Depending upon the capabilities of your web browser, you may not be able to use the enhanced system. If you experience problems with the interface, try disabling this option.

    I am using Mozilla Foxfire & have Enhanced turned on.

    That's a lot of work. Seems she's serious about you.

    I was going to point out that sashing & borders were invented to increase the size of the quilt & show off blocks (so they're not competing with each other visually), but it seems she's pretty much figured that out.

    That was it. I had to turn them off to get the attachments to preview or work. I am using Chrome.

    Very nice quilt!
