    I made this flag twice one year. Mom's is in more traditional red, white and blue and this is mine? I like to have things for all the seasons.

    What a great flag. I love that you didn't just use red, white and blue but put cool prints in there. Great job.

    I was taking a college class from an instructor I did not like, so I tortured her. She wanted all solid fabrics, hand quilted, matched seams, ect ect. In fact I started machine quilting just to tic her off, now I love it, LOL.

    The other people all followed her instructions and got 3 projects done all semester, I think I did about 10. I would lug my machine in there and plop it down right in the middle of the gossip session and sew as loudly as possible, she was SO annoyed! Every week or 2 I would say, got this one done Susan, what's next, LOL.

    Get this, she tattled on me! She told my mother that I did not follow instructions well! I was 49 years old!! I only took the class so that I would have deadlines to get stuff done.

    The first one was a challenge quilt with my guild. A collaborative effort with 3 friends. Didn't win 1st place but won 3rd.

    Second one was made a very, very long time ago -- like 15 yrs. I've hung it up this year, just like every year.

    Very nice... I prefer the non-white, too!

    I made a quilt very similar to this one for a friend to send to her husband who was stationed in Iraq. She mailed it to him there to keep above his bunk. She gave me a photo of him holding the quilt up in front of a bombed out building at the edge of the desert. It still gives me goosebumps to look at that picture, knowing that's the quilt I made.

    My DH, me and my mom all worked on this quilt about 18 months ago. My DH (Papa John) posted pics of it a while ago, but here it is again. We gave it to our church to hang to honor all the service men and women who attend there, as well as our family members (names on label). We love seeing it hanging every time we go to church. The pattern was from quilterscache.com.
