    Muv .... how wonderful! I was thinking of you last night while watching a couple of documentaries of the Queen's life with interview of the Grandchildren (and others). I hope you will show us pics of your quilt as you work along. Please??

    Canada Quilt for Breast Cancer Research

    A friend survived Breast Cancer and started a group called Wild Pink Yonder (www.WPY.com) to incorporate her love of horses and desire to raise money for research in Alberta, Canada. I made this quilt for the auction held at the end of the 21 day horse ride through beautiful Alberta:

    Sounds wonderful Muv. Any photos of the design or fabric yet?

    I managed to get two more rows done of my cross-stitch maple leaf centre for my quilt. Too much else going on right now so I'm glad I issued the challenge to start and, hopefully, finish a new project or I wouldn't be getting anything done on it.

    Beautiful quilt pasovasz. I love the texture of your quilting. The quilting world certainly does a lot for charity and that is great. Will you be doing another one as part of this challenge?

    Remember, the challenge is to start a NEW patriotic project. If you are already partway through one, that is great, too. We encourage you to finish it with us. And, don't forget, patriotism is a worldwide trait. Let's see more countries repesented.

    Come one, come all. Join in the fun and tell us a little about your country or the reason behind your choice of project and design.

    Home from retreat, decided on a small project for the table in our Roadtrek. Need to unpack my things & will post a picture of the basic fabrics.

    I'm in! I have a flag wallhanging I started awhile back that I don't like. It's too big & kind of blah. I've held onto it for several years because I just wasn't sure what to do with it. I have decided to cut it up & put it back together bargello style to look like a waving flag. I'll post it when I'm done! Thanks for the motivation!

    MaggieMay -- we'll look forward to seeing your re-worked UFO! Sometimes those old UFOs just need to take on a new life, don't they?

    ... great fabric ... and now you have me curious what you have planned for your multi-national patriotic project? Good idea to bring together both of your ancestries into this!

    Though I can't help but *pout* when I see such nice Canadian flag fabric ... I haven't been able to find any!

    Maggiemay - so glad we could assist in the inspritation department. I can't wait to see what you come up with. It sounds fabulous.

    thimblebug - I love your fabrics and think it is great that you will incorporate your husband's country of origin colours. Canada is, after all, a very multinational country.

    QuiltE - one day you may just find a few small pieces of Canada flag fabric coming your way. But, not likely in time for this challenge.

    Keep those new projects, or reworked projects, or UFO's coming.
