It is an honor to see all you create! Nancy Zieman received the email below from Stephanie Kepecs, a Sewing with Nancy viewer, who wanted to share an American Flag quilt pattern that she designed for her son.

I was watching your show recently and was awestruck by a quilter who was making quilts for soldiers (the Nancy’s Corner segment with Cathy Ott’s recycled honor quilt). Sewing with Nancy has been a weekly vacation for me for many, many years. I thought you may be interested in an American Flag that I designed. I am not a professional; I teach quilting as a volunteer. Thanks for all the happy hours. Stephanie

Nancy was impressed. The quilt design, entitled The Betsy Ross Flag, is stunning! Yet, the most amazing part is that Stephanie and her friend Joanne Perlmutter, co-designer, want you to have the pattern, too!

    I just want to thank the two ladies, who designed this beautiful quilt and the fact that they, Stephanie Kepecs and Joanne Perlmutter, have made this pattern available to all. This just gives proof how quilters will give what they have learned not only because of the love of quilting, but how eager they are to share their knowledge. Thank you, Nancy, for all you do!

    What a stunning way to celebrate the Fourth of July! Thanks to all for the flag quilt pattern. Loved the segment about the recycled honor quilt made from old uniforms. It gave me goosebumps. Such a fabulous gift for that young man.

    I just finished a Bargello flag that is waving and now am ready to tackle this amazing flag. Thank you ladies for sharing this patter with us and thank you Nancy for your willingness to do what you do.

    This is indeed beautiful. One thing to note: This design is a flag even though it’s been quilted. Any flag design like this that’s previously been considered an official US flag is still considered official. So, if you’re going to make this, please display it as you would a regular flag. In the US Code, Title 4, Chapter 1, Section 8, “Respect for Flag,” it says, “The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery…”
    If you’d like to make a quilt that could be used as a quilt, consider instead a bunting design. (Continuing in the US Code) “… Bunting of blue, white, and red, always arranged with the blue above, the white in the middle, and the red below, should be used for covering a speaker’s desk, draping the front of the platform, and for decoration in general.” What a great idea for a quilt – after all, we work hard so our quilts are pleasing to the eye and downright decorative.
    If you want stars with your bunting, how about incorporating squares of a single star per block, a white star on a red or blue background, a red or blue star on a white background (not much contrast with red and blue together). Small squares would look nice at the corners of strips of sashing or large squares alternated with plain or bunting squares.
    Happy Fourth of July to all.
