Patriot Inspiration

Thank you to the Veterans of the United States Military for your service to our country!

My quilt guild held a two day retreat this past weekend.  Since it was Veteran’s Day Weekend, I decided to finish tacking down the binding on my American Flag Quilt.

The flag in the quilt is actually a panel by Timeless Treasures Fabrics that I purchased at Red Rooster Quilts in Dublin, Ohio.  Red Rooster designed the quilt by adding a wide inner border of off white fabric and a wide outer border of Timeless Treasures blue & white stars.  The quilt is finished with a red binding.

I fell in love with the fabrics in this quilt because they all have a “weathered barn” look which can hide a multitude of wear and tear.  Hopefully this quilt will see more wear and less tear!

My quilter, Ms. SJ, used a stars & loops design to add another patriotic dimension to my fast and easy masterpiece.

This quilt is now on my couch where it will provide patriotic inspiration all year round!
