    Howdy! I am new to this forum and wanted to take a moment to introduce myself.

    I am Missy and I live in South Dakota. I have been quilting for more than 15 years. I taught my mother how to quilt about two years ago. It is really fun watching someone learn to do something like quilting.

    We spend about 2 days a week quilting together. It is always fun.

    I have two daughters, 18 and 19 yrs old. My 18 yo is about to be deployed to Iraq. She is in the army. I am very interested in some different ideas for a patriotic quilt for her for when she comes home from overseas. Any ideas?

    Thank you for having such a great place to gather.

    Take care!

    Missy

    She really liked the disappearing nine patch but I really wanted to find something different. I am going to do some browing on quilterscache.com.

    I really appreciate all of the wonderful things people say about my daughter's service. It really is heart warming. I definitely feel that she is an amazing person to take on such a huge responsibility. It was her dream to enlist in the army. She makes me proud.

    Welcome to the board from Southern California!!!

    Thank you for your daughter's service. My daughter returned last September from a year in Iraq with the Army. Before that she spend a year in Afghanistan (glad she was there in that order!)

    Any quilt that you make her would be loved. I sent one over to mine for each deployment and she really enjoyed having a touch of home in her "Hootch". You could just find some Red white and Blue fabrics and make something or find a pattern with stars in it.
    I have a "Family Pride" quilt that I made during her first deployment that I plan on giving her when they get into their first home, (hopefully next month) (She married in June 08 and deployed in August the same year)
