Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Hi coopah: Our car club managed 10 cars last year when we weren't even organizing the car show portion of the event so we can get a lot of people out. We are entering the 2006 MINI, not the 1974 Mini we have. We have received flack for the MINI previously but, once we tell people it is a special edition, 1 of only 64 in the world, and has 210 hp, they seem to appreciate it suddenly. We will also enter our 1960 Austin Healey Sprite Mk1 (BugEye) which we are just finishing. Later in the year, the BugEye is going on a 1500 mile three day tour and then a trip to Maryhill, Washington for the Car is King weekend. A trip to the far south would only be accomplished on a car trailer, I think.
Next time you visit, give me aheads up.
Are you thinking of joining our challenge?
craftymatt2/Mary: I honestly don't remember. I've been collecting fabrics for a while. The pattern, some of the flag fabric and I'm sure some of the red came from The Quilted Bear in Ladner, BC. The majority of my stash is from local quilt shops around Vancouver BC as well as from the sewing shows in the area. How much do you need? Once I finish the cutting I can see if there is any spare and send some your way. I hope you join us for this challenge. It doesn't have to be a full quilt if you are consumed by other projects, and aren't we all.

Count me in.......I promised my son a quilt to use as a fundraiser for the Veterans in his local area. I'm working on half-square triangles now. Will post photos soon. Thanks for this nudge to get busy!
Count me in. I'm finishing a patriotic wall hanging, just binding to go. It is for our son's birthday the end of this month. Chad served in Desert Shield/Desert Storm in Saudi Arabia. This wall hanging is to honor his service.

As QuiltE knows My PC quilt is Patriotic. I'll come here, ooo, awww, & chatter. One patriotic thing at a time! I love all things Patriotic.
I can't wait ta see all things Canadian.
My initials are BB, so dublb is double B.
Can it be projects that have been previously completed? This is a wallhanging that was requested by a friend for a new family member that hailed from Canada. A blending of American and Canadian. They were thrilled with the result. I tried to stay to scale on placements for each flag, and had to make patterns for the stars (they were actually painted and then outline stitched) and the maple leaf (drawn freehand on a folded paper, then unfolded to have a symmetrical result). Here's some pics...

Count me in. It may not be as beautiful as those shown but I'll do something fun.
A quilt is a hug for future generations.
Peggy - I love how you combined the flags of our two countries! Thanks for describing how you did the stars. They look great!
... My husband lets me buy all the fabric I can hide.
peggymunday - that looks great.
The idea of the challenge is to do a new project for this year. Since you have done such a great larger project maybe you want to join us by making something small like placemats or pot holders or a mini quilt or ???
