Today we honor and thank all those who have served in the US Military. Both my father (the sailor) and my father-in-law served our country and I think of them both today with gratitude for their service and the service of all our veterans.
Do you make quilts for Veteran’s? I know many of you are involved in donation quilting like I am and I try to make and donate a couple Red/White/Blue quilts each year. I also draft a lot of the quilts on my website in RWB and offer the instructions for free. You can find them at this link – in most cases you’ll need to scroll down for the RWB versions. A few of my favorites are below.
I’ve made my Patriotic Rail fence several times using different stars for the top (and bottom) border.
Double 4 Patch
RWB Half Square Triangles – this one was inspired by a vintage quilt I found on eBay.
