I would invite everyone to post pictures of their patriotic quilts if they have one. This is the closest thing I have to a patriotic quilt. I made it in one day, on, of all days, 9/11/01. Of course, there's not much in explanation needed for the inspiration. It seems that day we were sucker punched.
It had hung in our church for about a year, and first people complained about the the "In God We Trust" banner, so that was removed. Then someone thought we did not need to have a flag in the church lobby. So it was removed, I never did understand that explanation.
