  1. still working on mine…but this is an inspiration. wonderful job!!! Very deserving of the recognition.

  2. Love the flag addition. Where can we buy the pattern for it if we’d like to substitute the flag for the garden hose? Thanks so much!! Love working on this BOM!

    1. Gloria,

      I’ve asked about the pattern too. No reply yet. Let me know if you get one!!!! Love it too.

      1. What are you girls looking for… A pattern for , A Primitive Garden? If so it is on our website… Under “our designs”
        If you at looking for the flag pattern that is Janet’s addition to my pattern… Her thing to make this quilt different from everybody else’s.

  3. This inspires me to finish mine. I bought the pattern in Paducah in 2008 and have about 2/3s of the blocks done but haven’t worked on it for 3 years. Maybe I will get it out. I had to use all cottons because they had stopped making the kits for it.

      1. Oh, how I wish you could add this block to the pattern ! I just love the flag and flag pole in the quilt ! Maybe, a bonus block ! PLEASE

  4. I completed my last year and just love it. I like the addition of the flag, but I love my original quilt just as much!!


  5. it was great to see this quilt at the show…she really did do a lovely job!!it was lovely to visit your booth too Lisa – thank you for signing my bag 🙂 I am looking forward to getting my purchases back to New Zealand and playing with them all 🙂 Hope you had a safe trip home.

  6. where can I find the pattern for the flag block? I am working on the 11th block and prefer your interpretation with the flag on the right hand side border…thanks
