    http://www.qovf.org//ufiles/files_ph...IN%20QUILT.pdf

    The army one and the marines one are essentially the same only the matrines one does not have the border and is smaller.
    The center is a pillow panel from Walmart. If you need a marines one let me know we can trade for a
    FQ or something.
    Thank you so much Anna.... Actually Im prior Navy so will insert a Navy Panel. Im so excited... I had already told my husband that soon as you replied I was purchasing the pattern and getting busy.. Oh grand, that it is a freebie on line.. Thank you Thank you.
    Have an awesome day!

    Patriotic Mystery Quilt update. I have still have a few borders to complete...this coming Friday is the Final Reveal and setting instructions. Then it will be ready to sandwich and quilt. Actually contemplating hand quilting this..still on the fence..also I have to figure out what color to make the back and binding.

    JenniKy ... You must be very pleased .... your patriotic theme certainly has worked well with this Mystery! I "think" you were also doing a different group of fabrics as well? Would you please show us how it is looking? Congratulations!!

    Jenniky...your fabric choices really worked for the mystery quilt. I've seen you on the mystery train quilt and you mentioned another mystery quilt. It sounds like you're hooked on mysteries! I did the first train ride and have started one at the LQS. I'm finding them interesting.

    Hello everyone! I just found this site today and saw this post. I happened to have just finished a small patriotic wall hanging for a quarterly swap that I do with some friends. I liked it so much I made a second one to keep. LOL As soon as I figure out how to post pics I will share. And I think I may have some that I took of the "during" process as well. I loved looking at everyone's projects. They are all so inspiring!

    Muv I can't wait ta see what your's looks like.
    When my boy's would get old enough ta look close, I'd ask 'em ta go & pick me a pretty purple flower.
    When they'd get close ta 'em they'd tell me "no." My boy's are 8 yrs. apart so I got ta do it twice. Mean ol' Mama.

    The initial idea that Works4Me and I had for our own projects were to get them done for this Canada Day ... instead of having them on the back burner for another year!!! that's really how it all got started, and we thought, why not get others in on it too! So that's the idea ... though we know that many will not have their projects done and that's OK too!!

    If we have helped to spark some interest and get some Patriotic Projects going, then that's all good! Remember, it's all for fun .... and the Challenge is merely to do something, sometime!

    Muv is doing a wonderful Diamond Jubilee Quilt and I know her goal is long after and I'm sure she'll continue to give us updates as she progresses. And I know I for one, will continue to be here to cheer her on. I hope others will too.

    Likewise, I'm sure there are many others who will do International Patriotic Projects long past this Canada Day ... so DebQuilts! please do tell us, what are you planning?

    QuiltE pointed me to this challenge several days ago and I have to confess, I'm intrigued. I've read all the posts, have been following the thread every day and started sketching some ideas this evening. The result is now I'm too psyched up to sleep. I'm still deciding if I should join in (I have another challenge I'm working on for a magazine), but it's very tempting...and getting more so almost daily.

    As a border state dweller for most of my life, I'd really like to do something that shows the international camaraderie shared between the US and Canada so I hope that would fit into the theme. QuiltE is very good at promoting this challenge...and I do thank her for that. I'm off to polish up some of those sketches.
    The Earth without art is just "Eh".

    Welcome Ghostie!!

    Sounds like a wonderful theme to your project!! Fit absolutely perfect for International Patriotism. Remember while this is a Challenge, there's really no rules ... it's just do something!

    And while we've focused to the Canada Day and Independence Day dates ... there's really no deadline.

    It was more
    Works4Me and my date ... as we both had projects that we had sitting around but not getting at. So just make plans and get started!!

    And yes, we like to see the before, during and after stages ... so we can quilt along with you, and cheer you on!!! I'll look forward to seeing your sketches, and perhaps your fabrics!

    Is this machine or hand appliqué/embroidery? Beautiful work.
