My patriotic quilts. . .

I thought it might be fun to see my patriotic and flag quilts all together.

designed by Jan Patek

Plaid quilt in red, white, and blue with buttons - love this quilt

A combination of designs by Blackbird Designs

Little Women 12 by Jo Morton

Made in a SAL with my group Bound Together.
 It now has a border made of the same ombre print as the star and the inner border. 

Ohio Star flag, I don't remember the designer.

My first quilt.

This might not look that patriotic but I sewed flags instead of the solid blocks of fabric that the pattern called for.  It's was a Mystery BOM  called Piece and Plenty from Fat Quarter Shop online.

My first "Women of Grace and Charm" designed by Blackbird Designs.

My 2nd "Women of Grace and Charm" quilt.  I like this one better, I think it's because it's just a little lighter.  But I like the center of the other one better - sigh

I think this is my absolute favorite backing.  It is the backing for the 2nd "Women of Grace and Charm" quilt above.

I have one other one that I didn't include.  It's because there is a big glaring mistake in it and I'm going to have to unpick the quilting, reverse the offending strip, and then quilt that place again.  It's not something I look forward to.

Have a happy flag day!

Enjoyed seeing all your great quilts. Read your profile, you are ahead of me on the grandkids - I have 12! Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog.

The backing fabric you like so well would be a favorite for me had I ever seen any of it.

The first quilt you show, I think is Jan Patek's Country Paths. My friend and I were thinking of making it. She has all the fabric. Me, I would have to dig and stash and use something else. I enjoyed seeing all the quilts in your post. Nice collection.

A great assortment of R/W/B quilts, Robin! I haven't pulled mine out yet, but they are all small. You have lovely ones that would actually keep a person warm!

What a lovely lot of patriotic quilts! I like each one of them, so much! Jan Patek's design is a favorite, and Piece and Plenty, the first Women of Grace and Charm, and of course, Sweet Land of Liberty! After that, I like all the rest. LOL How wonderful to have such a great collection.
