P&B Textiles is participating in the Quilts of Valor project. The goal is to make a
patriotic quilt for every US Service member who has been touched by war. That's a lot of quilts, which means that a lot of patriotic fabric is needed. Our

The project is being spearheaded by the Quilts of Valor Foundation, and you
can check out how to participate at their web site, www.qovf.org . If you would like to donate a quilt, please feel free to download Pat's pattern and use
it. If you want to make the quilt for yourself, please note that it works both with and without the wording on the top and bottom. (If you're donating it, please
make it the full size.) We think it looks great both ways!
BTW, you can also download the letters and stars on Pat's web site,
Visiting her site is always an adventure. Pat is involved in so many things - we
suspect that she never sleeps!
Next up, a new collection with a farm theme, created by the same artist who drew our Safari So Good
