Hi ~ 

Can anyone suggest a Patriotic Quilt Design to use?  My daughter is wanting to make a quilt for her best friend's husband who is currently enlisted.  I appreciate the help!

There are bound to be plenty of ideas on Pinterest for patriotic quilts. I have  a pattern for one for sale on Craftsy:

The gentleman is the husband of a friend of mine. She made the quilt as a Quilt of Valor for him.

I made this from a Fons & Porter Easy Quilts pattern.  In the magazine, it was made with baseball fabric, but I obviously went a different route.  This was a wedding gift for friends. He served in the Navy during the Vietnam War, and I used blue and white anchor fabric on the back.  Not technically a QOV, but I included a thank you for his service on the label.

Thank you, Ellen!  They did love it, and he teared up when he read the label.  Unfortunately, too many of our Vietnam vets have not been thanked for their service.
