American Flag quilt pattern by  Stephanie Kepecs Joanne PerlmutterI recently received the email below from Stephanie Kepecs, a Sewing with Nancy viewer, who wanted to share the American Flag quilt pattern that she designed for her son.

I was watching your show recently and was struck 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

I 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, wanted you to have the pattern too!  As we approach Memorial Day and think of the sacrifices that others have made for our freedom, consider making and giving this wall quilt to a deserving service person—active or retired.
