A frequent contributor to McCall’s Quilting and other magazines, Oh Glory! author Kathy Flowers began quilting in 1976. As you’ll see in her guest post below, she was inspired to write Oh Glory! on a very special day, and because of a very special man.

Kathy FlowersQuilting and design are much more than a hobby to me. Learning to quilt was a gift passed along to me from my sister, Patty. I’ve found so much peace while piecing quilts. I quilt to relax, and other times, quilting and designing allow me to challenge myself, try something new, or learn a new technique. My designs are often geared toward beginners or confident beginners, hoping to draw them into this wonderful world of quilting and help them build their confidence as they test the waters.

Reflecting back, I think the inspiration for Oh Glory! came to me the night of May 28, 2004, as I watched my father, at age 78, walk humbly across the stage in front of a large crowd to receive his high-school diploma. I remember how proud he was to be saluted (again), thanked for his years of military service, and receive the high-school diploma he left behind as he went off as a young man to fight in World War II. The standing ovation and thunderous roar of applause left him almost speechless, except for a softly spoken thank you.

I Am Honored quilt
I Am Honored

That inspiration sat idly in my mind and heart for years, until I began designing the quilts for this book. As I designed these quilts, and now that the book is here, I thank not only my father, but all the members of our military for keeping us safe and for giving us the freedom to achieve our goals with dedication and hard work. This book is my small way of saying thank you to all military personnel, at home and abroad, for all they do to keep our country safe.

Song of Victory quilt
Song of Victory. A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of
Old Glory! will be donated to a military organization as a continued effort to thank those who selflessly serve and still need our help.

Oh Glory! is a collection of patriotic quilts, some traditionally pieced, some paper pieced, and some with a touch of wool appliqué. Some are large and others are small. I’ve attempted to design something for everyone, no matter your skill level.

As you flip through the book, you may notice that the fabrics used are not necessarily patriotic themed. This was done intentionally. The mere image of red, white, and blue shouts patriotic, and it’s quite easy to make some of these projects simply by searching your stash. Some stash-busting projects are Stars of Freedom and Patriotic Dreams.

A fat-quarter friendly project is Pappa Bear.

I hope you have as much fun making these quilts and projects as I did designing them. Please remember to thank that military man or woman in your life. Family or not, a sincere thank you goes a long way.


Oh Glory!Thank you for sharing the touching story behind your book with us, Kathy!

Who would you make a patriotic quilt for: your family, a veteran you know, Quilts of Valor? Tell us in the comments and you could win a copy of Oh Glory! plus Kathy’s designer thread box from Aurifil! We’ll choose a random winner one week from today and let you know by email if you win. Good luck!

Thanks to all who entered the drawing! The winner is Valerie, who says:

“I would love to make one for my dad he served in the war but he says he didn’t do anything. You see he was a mechanic therefore he feels he didn’t contribute to the war effort. I feel he did because you need all your engines running at 100% capacity to be able to fight long and hard to win! And I just want him to know what he did was important to all of us! I also have longed to make a QOV Quilt I live less than two miles from our NAF I feel it’s a small way to give back to OUR military personal, and I’m a beginner so I need simple patterns. Thank you for the chance to win good luck everyone.”

We’ll email you about your prizes, Valerie—congratulations!

  • My husband. He served 34 years in the military. Many tours, many separations. When he served during the Vietnam era being sent to Korea in 1972, he was taunted, urine and feces thrown at him, and the hurt is still there. On his Desert Storm tour he was cheered and thanked but it has never healed the hurt he received as a young man going off to serve the country he loved, providing the freedoms we all enjoy including these people who hurt him so much.

This 90 year old veteran was retiring as the chief of Memorial Day programs after serving in that capacity for over 40 years. It was humbling to see that my quilt had brought tears to his eyes. What an honor it was for me to gift him with a patriotic quilt complete with a label containing the details about his time in service- as well as my gratitude for his service to our country. I plan to do another surprise presentation of a patriotic quilt to another local veteran again this year!

Got off active duty and went to work for our father and put himself through college at night. When he got his degree, he enlisted in the Marines again and worked himself up through the ranks to the grade of LCOL. I am so proud of what be has done with his life. He is retired, but once a Marine always a Marine.

    I’d also love to make a QOV and present it to the oldest veteran in my home town of Atoka, Tennessee. All of our veterans deserve to know exactly how much we appreciate the service and sacrifice they have done for this great country of ours.

    —Kay Loudenberry on May 3, 2017
  • I would love to make one for my dad he served in the war but he says he didn’t do anything. You see he was a mechanic therefore he feels he didn’t contribute to the war effort. I feel he did because you need all your engines running at 100% capacity to be able to fight long and hard to win! And I just want him to know what he did was important to all of us! I also have longed to make a QOV Quilt I live less than two miles from our NAF I feel it’s a small way to give back to OUR military personal, and I’m a beginner so I need simple patterns. Thank you for the chance to win good luck everyone.

Y como no, a los Veteranos que hicieron lo mismo antes. También es un honor al espíritu Americano. Me gusta mucho el libro. Saludos.

    Translation: It seems to me a book with very nice quilts and at the same time very respectful to the soldiers who have participated in a war, or they dedicate to the security not only of the United States of America but of the whole world. And of course, the veterans who did the same thing before. It is also an honor to the American spirit. I really like the book. Greetings.

Back in 2012, I accompanied him on an Honor Flight back to Washington DC. It was a wonderful experience and a tremendous blessing. I’ve been building a stash of Red, White, and Blue fabrics with plans to make several quilts including a Thimble Quilt and Star Medallion, one of several of Kathleen Tracy’s quilts on my list! Now, I’m going to add several more from "Oh Glory!" I’d love to win the book and the thread to make a quilt for my Dad. Thanks for making this give away possible!

He had signed up after 9/11 and felt he had a duty to protect this country but military life got much harder with a wife and daughter worrying about him coming home safely. He’s a great example of a true Patriot to me and I don’t do enough to thank him for his service.

    the ceremony or by visiting them at their homes.

    The next group is for the rest of the vets at the legion. This will include the Vietnam war and all other conflicts to date. We will have 105 more quilts to present {hopefully} this September.
