Ever since taping Marianne Fons’ Quilts of Valor special for Iowa Public Television, I have been inundated with requests on where to buy my Stars and Stripes quilts pattern. I couldn’t tell you because knew the pattern was being given away as an exclusive in this issue. I am both very happy and very proud to say that the pattern for my patriotic Quilts of Valor Foundation quilt has been published by Fons & Porter’s LOVE OF QUILTING magazine in their September/October 2012 issue that is just hitting the newsstands now! Here’s what the issue cover looks like:
This is a pretty easy quilt to cut and to piece and the results are well worth the effort!
Here are a few pictures from behind the scenes of the Iowa Public Television special . . .
