    W4Me and QuiltE....Thanks and Yes.. I like that we get the clues once a week on Friday.. I was chatting with a lady who was involved in a six month mystery quilt and only gets a clue every month... I think I would lose interest at that rate. The BOM however does work for me once a month..because each block is in and of its own but with a over all theme. Doing a mystery quilt that way would put me to sleep.. I would get to involved in other projects. LOL As it is I keep getting distracted by little projects.. a PP block here and some handquilting there.. a new technique..thank you Muv to try and so forth..LOL I just wish I didnt have to sleep then I could quilt around the clock.. I did however step outside this morning to put my vegetable starts into the ground. I dont have much of a green thumb..but I try.
    Have an awesome day!

    JenniKy ... I'm just completing a 8 month, once a month Mystery. The first two months I drove myself nuts, as like you I wanted to do more and was frustrated with the long gap! Then I gave myself and shake, and realized this is kind of cool ... I'm getting an extra project done, without really seeming like I'm doing anything. From then on, I seemed to get into the groove, and just let it pace me to make sure I got it done. I picked up the final clue on Saturday and it'll probably be the hardest one to do, just because I know there isn't much to do ... and that I don't have the deadline of the next Clue to nudge me into action. I'm in a UFO Challenge at my LQS til the end of May, so the Mystery will go on hold til after that, as I know I can't get it all finished between now and then, along with other things I want to finish up!

    Jenniky - great to see progress, and glad I gave you a bit of distraction. And while you are planting vegetables I am busy doing an applique of a leek to represent Wales.

    Guess you are doing your own veggie planting, Muv!!
    GMTA as last night I was thinking ... that really, you have til next June for the 60th of the Coronation!!
    So you'll have a quilting project for the whole time of the celebrations.

    Guess we have lots of Coronation celebrations to come for the next year.
    Prince Charles and Camilla are dropping by for a few days later this month ... wonder if we'll have any more Royals to follow?

    Here is a picture of an 80" square patriotic quilt I just finished. The center of the quilt started with the printed Eagle & Prairie Star panel from the American Valor collection and I pieced the remaining 4 prairie stars and the stripes and bear paws around that. JulieDeGrave, a very talented LAQ, quilted the quilt. I'll probably be posting it later this week when I get a chance to download more pictures. You all should see the amazing work Julie did on the eagle, which doesn't show up here.
    Can you take a close up picture of the eagle? Please

    Jenniky - You must drop everything and dash out NOW and buy leeks. PM me if you want suggestions on what to make with them. You have deprived yourself for too long!

    As Works4Me mentioned ... we want to see and hear the patriotism from our Quilter Friends in ALL countries, worldwide.

    And as many "threads" tend to become, chatting is encouraged on this one! We can all learn more about each other's part of the world, our customs and our cultures.

    So please do tell, and show us your "threads", in the Before, During and After stages, as you work your way thru a new Patriotic Project!

    (typed in true Canadian Flag Red!)


    P.S. I'll post a pic of the Mountie and all is parts soon!
    I've been away from the site for a while, but so glad I found this. We belong to a camping club and will be traveling to Blyth, Ontario in July for a week Campvention sponsored by our Canadian members/friends. We have a theme each year and are asked to decorate our campsite in the theme. This year it is "Path to Friendship". You've given me inspiration. Thinking a yard flag maybe. But I also need to incorporate "Inukshuks".
    We were in Niagra Falls, Canada two years ago the first week in July and greatly enjoyed all of the celebrations.
    I need to go now, I have this flag idea going around in my head and need to get working on figuring it out. Hope I have time to get it done.

    Sounds like a great idea mimistutz. So glad we could inspire you.

    I'm thrilled with how many of the projects are doing double duty.

    i just found a patriotic jelly roll that I had forgotten about. This will be a good reason to start another project (and finish it)!

    W4Me ... well isn't that quite the fabric!! Very INternationally Patriotic indeed!!
    Just happened to find ... when you were looking for MORE fabric! BTW, did you see the other moose fabric on the Awwwww thread?

    JenniKy ... I think the key would be that the instructions are well written. In my case they have been done, and this designer has been doing one a year, marketing it thru LQS'. I did one of her patterns before, as a $10 Challenge quilt and was pleased with it, so had some confidence going into it as a total Mystery. I've already put my name on the list for next fall when it starts again. We didn't have to take our quilt back after each step to get the next clue ... but I did make a "deal" with myself that I would never go for the next clue til I had the earlier one done. That way I knew I'd not lag behind. (Yes sometimes I did a clue, and a day or two later picked up the next one, and did it right away. So it ended up seeming like two months between in those cases!)

    Muv ... oh go ahead, and give us a leek cooking lesson! Leek and Potato Soup ... mmmm!!!

    Wall hanging inspired by the flag from the Republic of the Marshall Ilsands, blue, orange and white. The added rainbow of colors signifies, "You are a Rainbow." This was made as a wedding gift.

    AnnaQuilts...love both of your quilts.

    Murv....I agree leeks are very good. What is your favorite way of fixing them? I'm doing a leek and barley soup for the weekend.

    ****Rolls out the Red Welcome Mat!!!****

    Welcome Ladies!!!!!!

    MimiStutz
    ... It'll be good to have you in the "neighbourhood" for your Campvention!! You'll enjoy the Blyth area and no doubt, will go a little further west to our Sunshine Coast to enjoy the sun and sand ... and the sunsets are incredible too! What a great theme, the Inukshuk!! Your idea of a flag is great and we'll look forward to seeing what you create. With everyone getting into the spirit, it should make for a fun time at the Campvention!!

    MimiBug ... Glad you "found" that lost Jelly Roll ... creative ideas coming forth yet? There's some great projects with Jelly Rolls that would be perfect for a patriotic spirit.

    OMG ... just realized we have
    TWO "Mimi's" arriving together!!

    MissCountryGirl ... Now do't be shy!! I see you are new around these parts, so hope you will jump right on in and start something with an International Patriotic theme. Your country? or perhaps you'd like to do a Union Jack? (I read your blog!) If that is of interest, please let me know, as I have been saving some patterns for such, so I can do one ... sometime!

    AnnaQuilts ... I went back to add this to my earlier post to you, but after I typed the messages, the edit time had expired. Look forward to seeing what you decide to do! I think it was because I surfed away for a bit to check on the Marshall Islands! Have you been there? Looks like a bit of Paradise!

    I am working on several more. One I am quilting right now and another piecing. They are both red, white, and blue quilts. They are on the back burner because of a very large wedding quilt I am quilting and some swap obligations. I hope to work on the patriotic quilts this summer.

    Yes, I have been there and it is beautiful but there is also poverty and hardship for many of the people living there.


    I am glad this thread was started and I enjoy looking at everyones patriotic quilts.

    Yes, all too sadly, many of the paradise places are not so much a paradise for the locals. And they must look towards the visitors to help them survive.

    gardnergal970 - barley and leek soup. Sounds yummy. Please PM me the recipe as I have 6 days off starting tomorrow and leeks waiting in the fridge to be used. Sorry, Muv, but barley leek soup trumps mashed potatoes.

    MimiBug123 - can't wait to see what you come up with. So glad you found the fabric.

    Annaquilts - hope you can join us with a new project. You do lovely work.

    MissCountryGirl - glad you popped over for a visit. I hope we inspire you to join us. We will provide all sorts of encouragement, I promise. If you decide not to join, please feel free to drop by and comment. After all, we need encouragement, too, especially those of us who have barely started our projects (like the two thread starters).
