Quilted in Honor : Veterans Day

Veterans Day is observed on November 11 in the USA.  Here is a quilt to honor all those who have served in the military.   Thank you for your courageous service.

New Glory, 60 x 60", by Scott Hansen (Washington, USA)


The artist writes, "This quilt is dedicated to the brave men and women who so valiantly live and breathe to protect our county. I wanted to create something based on our American flag, but which also had a modern edge to it. There are fifty stars, all different and unique, just like our fifty states. There are multiple red and white stripes holding the design together. I kept the traditional colors to give homage to our current flag. I think that if Betsy Ross (the seamstress who sewed one of the first American flags in the year  1776)  were a modern quilter, she would be pleased."

Scott Hansen says, "New Glory was originally created as part of Island Batiks’ Quilted in Honor Traveling Quilt show to honor and bless our US veterans." The New Glory quilt pattern can be purchased at Blue Nickel Studios on Etsy.
