Piecing Our Nation Together, One Stitch at a Time

Christine tells us about her experience so far on this challenge: “I’m very excited about the Challenge 1 project. I have been shopping for fabrics I plan to use in my quilt top. I am planning another patriotic theme for this challenge. The 2012 Presidential Election is my inspiration. I hope to raise awareness and involvement in the election process. America is the greatest nation in the world. What better opportunity to demonstrate patriotism as an American right and privilege?

I am so pleased with the availability of so many beautiful patriotic fabrics now.   As my  quilt design is coming together, I  have been listening to patriotic music to help me feel the spirit I am attempting to capture. I will return to my studio as I hear ‘…I’m Proud to be an American…’  from Lee Greenwood’s ‘God Bless the USA!’” Good luck, Christine!
