Patriotic Mini Quilt

This is a little patriotic mini quilt that I finished a couple of days ago. I gave it the very unimaginative name of "54-40 or fight". But it seemed appropriate because it is, of course, the name of the block that it is made from, and that was an old presidential campaign slogan back in the day so it seemed patriotic. It is yet another UFO that I've brought out of storage to finish lately. It is a 54-40 or fight block that I added a couple of borders to and quilted. It is machine pieced and hand quilted. It's finished size is about 20 inches square.

The quilt's in the mail

I finally got around to mailing my little quilt (for the quilt swap - see pictures in the post below). I finished it a little while ago, but I was so busy with my son's graduation and college orientation that I just finally made it to the post office to send it.

So anyway, it is in the mail and out of my hands. I hope my partner likes it.
