    Well, Muv, you have a cheering section here. I,too, love the richness of the colours. It looks like the work will be quite intricate and I applaud you. Great start.

    Anyone else have some colours or progress to show?

    I would like to join this challenge... here are some pics of my fabric choices...The pattern I would like to say I have no clue..but actually I do have the first clue to the Bittersweet mystery with AQS I am participating in. It is suppose to be a scrappy...Im doing a controlled scrappy though. Can you see how Im trying to make lil flags in my four patches..lol

    That looks great Jenniky. Way to combine two threads on the forum into one! I like your large piece of fabric. It is a nice design and, yes, I do see the flag element to the 4 patches.

    Good to have you with us.

    Love the colours in your Rose fabrics selection Muv ; the 4 patches idea for a patriotic "flag" is such a neat idea Jenniky. So I took a little time this afternoon and started my center flag, it's 3 x 7 and the whole table topper will be 17 x 14 (approx)Name:  Center Flag 3 by 7001_edited (Small).JPG

    I love that thimblebug6000. The striped red fabric makes it look like the flag is waving, as do the lines in the white fabric. Good start. You are way ahead of me and my centre. I have 4 rows of cross stitch done plus the stem of the maple leaf.

    Count me in too. I have several patriotic "Pigs" (projects in grocery sacks) and this inspires me to get one or more of them done by July 1st. Should be fun!

    Just noticed that my member picture is a Patriotic quilt sampler that I did a couple of years ago. However, I am going to custom quilt it on my longarm and so it is in my pile of quilt tops to be quilted and not finished yet.

    Love all the ideas that you all have that I have now seen as I have gone back to the beginning of this challenge to read all the posts and see the pics. Going to be fun to see all these quilts and projects in progress as we go along. Need to get in my quilt studio and pick out what quilt I want to do and get fabrics and pattern posted on here.
