I have finished watching the five X-Men movies I borrowed from my son-in-law. I thoroughly enjoyed each one, and wish I could have seen them before I saw Wolverine. I discovered quickly that I had to watch the screen too much to allow for rotary cutting. Safe rotary cutting. So I started - and finished - the embroidered words on this eagle quilt top.
The designer stitched the name "Ann Hutton" on the left corner under the word "there". I had never heard of Ann Hutton, but American history was never my best subject. I tried to find out who she was, using "1797" as part of my Internet search string, but couldn't find anything about her at all. So I researched the quote, and found many, many references to it. Every one of them attributed the quote to Benjamin Franklin. So used his name, shortening it to "Ben" Franklin as there wasn't enough room in the corner for anything longer. I really like how this turned out. It will definitely be finished in time to join my other patriotic decorations next Summer.
