I hope JudyL sees it that way! She’s having a Memorial Day Quilt along and I love the idea but won’t be able to participate because I’ll be traveling SO I thought this would be a great time to make up one of my own Patriotic quilts that’s been posted on my MaryQuilts.com site but that I’ve never actually made. I wonder if I can finish the top before I leave on Thursday?
This quilt has kind of an interesting story — I made a Rail Fence quilt back in 2001 after the attack on the Towers and Pentagon and I somehow managed to donate it without taking a photo. So when I started posting instructions on my website, I decided to recreate the quilt in EQ. Last year I ran across a photo I’d posted on a quilt group and realized my memory was flawed so really I designed two similar but different Patriotic Rail Fence Quilts.
