Notice the bias seam that joins the two different border fabrics together has been pressed open to reduce bulk in the seam allowance and for ease in quilting.

I've been contemplating adding a giant embroidered eagle emblem to the center of this quilt top, still working out those details. Probably won't add it until 'after' it's completely quilted - I'll keep you posted!
In the meantime, looks like it's time for yours truly to head off to the quilting frame on National Quilt Day...;-)
