    I love red, white & blue quilts! I have a friend who inherited a Civil War flag with a bullet hole in it--it was carried by a family member, and she has all the documentation and everything. When she bought a house we decided to plan her decorating around this flag, which hangs over the fireplace. That meant lots of red, white, & blue! And lots of quilts for me to make for her!

They have just been sitting there forver! LOL Now I have something to use them with. I already had some fabrics but not enough different ones to do what I am wanting to do.

    I used Yellow Brick Road pattern for that one. Actually made a few of them for friends. I should have taken a pic of the back of it. One has Marine Corp seal on it, one has Army and the other Navy. I embroidered names on all of them, but don't know why this one didn't show a name. Might be because it was just the top at the time and didn't get it done as of that time. <shrug>

    Well its still knock my coks of beautiful! And I love the idea you had for the backings to be in the military fabrics. We seen some of those the other day, if they are the same ones we seen, they are very pretty! And naturally I love embroidery! I am addicted to it, I guess thats why 3 of my machies do it! LOL

    Thanks. I usually embroider the persons name on the front and then "sign" the back of it.
