Let's celebrate U.S. President's Day (February 16, 2015), with a timely quote by George Washington (b. 1732- d. 1799): If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.
Here is a colorful quilt, which features all of the U.S. presidents!
Presidents of the United States, 72 x 72", by Liz Piatt
It is hand appliqued and hand quilted, and the Presidents' faces are rendered in black embroidery thread. Notice the stars that are quilted onto the border. Justice also appears (below, left).
Here is the Presidential Oath of Office (shown embroidered in the close-up photo below): “I do solemnly swear
(or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
