In March I released a new pattern called True Patriot for the Timeless Treasures Tonga Patriot batik collection.
At the time I mentioned how I thought it would make a great Quilt of Valor. One of my followers (Cindy Ganschow) took up the challenge and made True Patriot for a special display of QOV quilts at her local county fair.
Her version of True Patriot has two additional borders to make it fit the size requirements. The quilt hung at the fair along side 11 other Quilt of Valor quilts.
AT the end of the fair, most of the quilts were given to veterans in an emotional ceremony. Some will be presented to veterans later.
What a wonderful display of patriotism! Can you imagine if every county fair did this?
Thanks Cindy for sharing your photos with us!
If you’d like to make True Patriot, you’ll find the free downloadable pattern here, on my free downloadable quilt patterns page.
If you make True Patriot or any other quilt pattern of mine, I'd love to see it!
I have a weekly linkup that's just perfect for sharing your works in progress and quilt finishes. Drop by any Wednesday to share what you're working on in my Wednesday Wait Loss.
