  • Love the Stars and Strips! Another reason to pray for our troops whereever they are! All our Sons and Daughters need our prayers so desperately!
    Their families need our support also. I have witnessed this up close
    and person.
    Thank you Martingale! I love your "site"!!

    Thank you so much, Marlene!

  • I am Canadian. But the stars and stripes is a must. I am going to make it so I can keep it in the car when I visit the USA and friends and family. Yes our troops need our support and prayers – I do QOV Canada quilts in thanks for my freedom.

  • I love the American patch work quilt and was wondering where I can purchase one from I’m from Australia

    Hi Lynette, we publish books about how to make quilts! If you’d like to make a quilt, you can browse our books here. We do send to Australia, but you can also purchase eBook versions of our books to save on shipping costs. Thanks for your question! –Jenny

  • I’m to old to make it I did in the past but my fingers do not allow me to do it but I would love to know where i can purchase one I’m 83 years old I have been to America and saw a lot of the beautiful patch work quilts there thank you for your reply. Lynette

    Hi Lynette, I’d suggest doing a search for quilt dealers in your area, or in the US – or maybe even talk to your local quilt shop to see if they have a contact for you. Hope this helps a bit – thanks for your question! –Jenny
