Utah Fair Quilt Challenge Quilt

This is the quilt I am doing for the Utah State Fair Quilt challenge. Each year in September at the fair, you can purchase a fat quarter of the challenge fabric (the backing of this quilt). You then have until the next fair to come up with a quilt to enter. I have done this challenge with my friends Sue C. and Ruthie D. for the past 2 years. So, even though I moved to Ohio, I had to do this year's quilt. I chose to do a patriotic theme because my son, Tim, has served in Iraq in the Air Force during this year. We owe a lot to our men and women who are serving, so this quilt is for them! Now, just to finish quilting and get it bound by mid-August!
