Independence Day wall hanging

I made this quiltlet to hang on my porch for Independence Day. I used a small flag, star patterned material, and two colors of twill. The back has grosgrain ribbon as an accent, so I made the hangers of the same ribbon. I aged the ribbon using linen distress ink.

The message reads:
"The soldier above all others prays for
peace, for he must suffer and bear
the deepest wounds and scars of war.
Douglas MacArthur"
The quiltlet is now hanging with the help of a tree branch from my yard.

Haere's to a wonderful Independence day for all US residents and a glorious Saturday for the rest of the world.

Wonderful little quiltie! and your hand spreads are really inventive...I like the variety of techniques and images that you utilize...buttons are a favorite of mine, and how can you sew on a button but with your hands? Happy Independence Day to you too! I will be working on painting my kitchen cupboards...=)
