This is what I did during the week of the convention. I had the donkeys from the swap, I had the piece that Tricia machine embroidered, I had the Spoonflower Hillary fabric for the 2016 and, of course, the paper-pieced logo. Liz made the block with the Liberty Bell in the background; she had traced the design with permanent pen. Because Philadelphia was important to me in this historic event, I spent one convention night hand embroidering over Liz's design. Another evening was devoted to hand-buttonholing the 2016. Today, despite an annoying back spasm, I was able to get it all together. I'm hoping that over the weekend I can sandwich and machine quilt; I'd love to be binding this on Tuesday night when our hand-quilting group meets.
