My niece asked me if I could make an afghan for someone that was retiring. I came up with four designs and this is the one that she and coworkers chose. I found out today that Kathy liked it. I made this on the passap machine in red, white and navy. It took me hours to get the stars right in the flag without distortion. I finally scanned the picture in black and white and then the corrections were not too time consuming. I originally had it red around the border but I used three strands of navy and two of the red and white and I felt that if I used red for border, the edges would be flimsier than the body of the afghan.You can click on picture for closeup.
