It’s June 14 already? Here in the US we celebrate June 14 as Flag Day, so who better to check in with than Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts! Here’s a peek at her recent blog post – I thought this photo in particular captures the spirit of the day. Read more about Pam’s work-in-progress, Lady Liberty…
…and be sure to make plans for Pam’s newest BOM, STAR SPANGLED LIBERTY! You’ll love her two options for the center row and her distinctive vertical “quilter’s flag” down the left side. Pam also includes American anecdotal history about our national anthem, The Star Spangled Banner, the Pledge of Allegiance, Old Glory flag facts, and about Betsy Ross, who played an epic role in the birth of the new nation.
The 9-month program begins in September! Quilt size: 74-1/2″ x 78″
News from the field, submitted by Marcus sales rep Julie Manning:
Debbie Mackenzie from Stitch Chicks Quilt Shop in Franklin, CT, hosted a ‘Quilts of Valor Charity Sew Session.’ During the event, customers created five of these quilts for the Quilts of Valor program. The group took advantage of the gorgeous LOVE & GLORY center panel, Strip-It fabric and coordinates by Faye Burgos to stitch up simple but meaningful gifts to show their gratitude to our US servicemen.
