Magnificent Presidential Quilt

During my visit to the United States which was conducting their campaign for President, I became obsessed with the idea of creating a quilt for the new president Barack Obama. The size of quilt was 106” x 86” and took 120 hours to complete. The fabrics were carefully chosen from several fabric shops.

I took the President of the United States symbol and I created the front of the quilt using a fabric that looked like feathers for the eagle. I cut out the stars and stripes to radiate out from the center symbol. I finished the quilt with the president's name and year.
Among the unique fabrics I was able to find the perfect backing for the Presidential quilt. As the commander and chief of the military I found a backing fabric with the accent of military people driving jeeps and pieced it together with fabric of first flag of the United States and the current flag of the United States. The original flag had the first words of the Constitution of the United States.

When the quilt was completed UPS to the White House in care of the President and Mrs Obama.

This project I believe is my best work ever. You be the judge.
