    patriotic sayings needed

    We are doing a raffle quilt for our local Commission on Aging.

    We need some suggestions for sayings to put wording on the outer border.

    For example 'Let Freedom Ring', or 'United We Stand', or 'God Bless America Land That We Love'.

    I haven't found short sayings on Google.

    Have you seen quilts with quotes or sayings that we could use?

    "Home of the Free because of the Brave" is one of my favorites.

    "Freedom's Way USA" was the slogan for the US Bi-centennial.

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T – is it True? H – is it Helpful? I – is it Inspiring? N – is it Necessary? K – is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Mine too.

    You can also use some of the words from America the Beautiful or Star Spangled Banner, like

    Oh Say Can You See
    From Sea to Shining Sea
    Amber Waves of Grain
    God Shed His Grace on Thee
