Thanks for this quilt pattern. Today we attended a Veterans Day program at our grandkids' school in Pearland, TX. All armed services were represented and honored. It was quite a moving program from the pledge to patriotic songs to Taps. Thanks to all who serve.

This will be a great Quilt of Valor. We make kits of up for our guild members to make. In the past three years we have sent over 400 quitls overseas and to a few local VA hospitals.

I love all the patriotic quilts, but this one really caught my eye. Thank you for the idea and for the instructions. Our grandson served in Afghanistan and we are so proud of him, and of every person who serves for this wonderful country. We pray daily for those who are still there. Thank you to whoever thought of giving the Patriotic Quilts to wounded soldiers.

American Independence Quilting Pattern
Made this quilt and gave pattern to a friend, never got it back! Happy to have it again!
Just jump in! Pick a very simple pattern for a lap robe or baby quilt then get started by following directions of the pattern. I got started by watching "how to" quilt programs on TV (and now there are many online) that will give you basic information. The main thing to remember is quilting is fun, so don't stress over all the details. Learn as you go!
I am 64 years old and have always wanted to be a quilter, however being the procrastenator that I am . I know that isn't spelled right. I have yet to make on. Any hints on how to get started?

In 2008 I did an Oregon Shop Hop. Received blocks from each shop to make. I did not get enough for a quilt, so this pattern will be perfect. Am going to incorporate those blocks in the border of this quilt.
