For our Barwick family reunion in July, I am making an auction quilt entitled, "Coming to America." I got the inspiration to do this while working on my Over the River and Through the Woods quilt. My husband drew up the images and I have been working on the embroidery. Panel 1 is all embroidered. My mother, along with her father and mother and 2 older brothers sailed to America in 1948 on the SSAmerica into New York harbor.
This image is to represent England with Big Ben and the castle.
