The Daily Paul Quilt from Quiltingsando. Happy Thanksgiving to AllSubmitted by Michael Nystrom on Thu, 11/27/2008 - 11:16
A few weeks ago, quiltingsando posted a thread about the quilt she made in appreciation of the Daily Paul. I received the quilt about a week and a half ago, and my wife and I have been enjoying it tremendously. It is so, so beautiful. Samantha was nearly in tears at how beautiful it is and at the generosity of our extended internet family. Thank you so much, quiltingsando and all of my family here at the Daily Paul.
Here is a picture of part of it, from its new home on our living room sofa. The brilliant yellow color represents gold (see the description below for full details):
On the back is the inscription, and information about the pattern:
It reads in full:
This quilt was made for Michael Nystrom in appreciation for his efforts to help give Freedom Lovers everywhere a forum to further solidify the Freedom message to positive actions. Peace Prosperity and Freedom. The Daily Paul Family, 11-27-2008.
"The Plunge Protection Team and a Wild Goose Chase."
This quilt has the Bargello and Wild Goose Chase pattern. The Bargello looks like a stock market graph and the Wild Goos Chase looks like arrows pushing up and down. Half of the graph (Bargello) was planned by design and the other half pulled strips of fabric from a bag at random. This represents the interference of the PPT vs. Free markets.
The hand quilting is done in a circular spiral motion to symbolize the unwinding of the US and Global stock market. The bright yellow fabric represents gold.
Below that are the names of 162 of us Daily Paulers, everyone who bumped quiltingsando's original thread.
Here is one last picture of the entire quilt, but believe me - the picture doesn't do it justice.
In spite of the state of the nation and the state of the economy, I have many things to be thankful for. This is the true meaning of Thanksgiving. Thank you quiltingsando, for your love. Thank you to my extended Daily Paul family for your ongoing support in the cause of liberty. Thank you Ron Paul, for your steadfast and unwavering commitment, and for lighting this fire. Above all, thank you God, for making this beautiful life possible.
