A Patriotic Wall Hanging

This is a machine-sewn wall hanging that is a WIP. I drew signatures of all of the signers of the Declaration of Independence on it. I stopped working on it when I ran out of the special indelible ink that I used for the signatures. Now I have more of the pens, but I need to finish other projects before I can assemble this and quilt it. It's to be a gift for my sister and brother-in-law, who retired recently after many years of service in the military and the government.

Here is a close-up of the cross-stitched center panel:

The liberty bell and stars of freedom are two freebie July designs by Erica Michaels
I designed the numbers. It's DMC floss on 14 ct. white Aida.
