And I close today with a prayer for America by our first President, General George Washington:

Almighty GOD; we make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy holy protection, that thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government; and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United States of America at large. And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of The Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication, we beseech thee, through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen

With prayers for the future, and always with thanksgiving to God, I hope you have a most blessed day!

  1. Thank you so much for this pattern and the info about the beautiful fabrics. I make quilts for the Fairfax County (Virginia) Chapter of Project Linus (we also cover Loudoun and Arlington counties). One of the events we support is Camp Good Grief, which takes place every Memorial Day weekend in Arlington, Virginia. Our chapter provides patriotic-themed quilts for the children of service personnel who have lost their lives in the course of military duty. I think this pattern is perfect and I love the big blocks, which makes a quilt go together more quickly.

  2. The Stars and Stripes Forever quilt is wonderful. It would be a great QOV. I’m going to download for later. Too many irons in the fire right now.

  3. This is a pretty quilt, Wendy. I really like it
    Thank you for sharing it
    This is a great prayer from President and General George Washington.,

  4. Thank you for the beautiful prayer. We need to come together as a nation. Whether the man is the one you wanted or not, he is our President, and as such, deserves respect. Give the man a chance before you decide….doesn’t he deserve that? Makes me sad that people are so angry and full of hate.

  5. Thanks for the quilt pattern and GW’s prayer!!!!! It is a beautiful prayer and I also pray for the safety our new President and his entire family. Time for us all to come together as one Nation – under God!!!!!!
