I have added more pictures on the flickr album …

I made this quilt to commemorate the 250th Lafayette birthday’s anniversary and also  to celebrate the french-american friendship !  « Freedom, Faithfullness, Friendship », three « F » for a new motto dedicated to this wonderful friendship! ( made in  2007)
