  1. wow I am the first to comment! this song always gives me goose bumps!

    And I'm proud to be an American,
    where at least I know I'm free.
    And I won't forget the men who died,
    who gave that right to me.
    ~Lee Greenwood

  2. Maybe not a well known quote, but I think it really stands a lot for what we are going through now. Thank you, veterans and active military for the job you do!

    "These are the times that try men's souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it Now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict the more glorious the triumph."

    - Thomas Paine, The Crisis - December, 1776

    I loved looking at your blog by the way, and this little quilt is gorgeous. Found you from Stashbusters!

  3. Thanks for this giveaway. My personal favorite is " I love America" and it's been that way for years.

    BUT the most famous quote that I have loved since childhood is from Irving Berlin as sung by Kate Smith, it is:

    God Bless America,
    Land that I love.
    Stand beside her, and guide her
    Thru the night with a light from above.
    From the mountains, to the prairies,
    To the oceans, white with foam
    God bless America, My home sweet home.

    Patriotic regards and best wishes with your new entreprise.


  4. Hoorah. Marine pep word.

  5. "You're a grand old flag, you're a high flying flag and forever in peace may you wave." This is one of my favorite American quotes. Thanks for your quilt kit give away! It would be great to win in. Stashbusters is where I learned about your blog.

  6. My favorite is JFK's "Ask not what your country can do for you but ask what YOU can do for your country." If more people would take this to heart, our country would be in a much better place! God Bless America! Hope you are having a good Independence Day.

  7. The quote that always give me goosebumps is

    ". . . ask not what your country can do for you --- ask what you can do for your country."
    - John F. Kennedy
    Inaugural Address,Jan 20,1963

    The daughter of a Marine who served in WWII and died in Korea during the Korean Conflict, the neice of a Navy pilot who died in the skies over VietNam; the older sister of a Army Veteran who died while working as a civilian in Germany, I am proud to be an American!

  8. My favorite quote is on the money we all carry around and drives everything I do.

    In God We Trust

    Short, sweet and to the point :)

  9. Where liberty dwells, there is my country - Benjamin Franklin.

    Happy 4th of July!

  10. What a darling quilt.

    My favorite American quote is:

    "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

    Hubby says, "Gentlemen, start your engines."

  11. "God Bless America,
    Land that I love.
    Stand beside her, and guide her
    Thru the night with a light from above.
    From the mountains, to the prairies,
    To the oceans, white with foam
    God bless America, My home sweet home."

    The words from this song by Irving Berlin is needed now more than ever.

    Love your blog and visit it often.
    Have a Happy Independence Day and God Bless America!

  12. The one "All American" quote that comes to mind the strongest is the first verse of The Star-Spangled Banner. It brings proud tears to my eyes every time I sing it or hear it.

    "Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
    What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
    Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
    O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
    And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
    Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
    Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
    O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?"

    by Francis Scott Key 1814 during the War of 1812.

  13. Cute quilt.
    There are so many quotes that I love, but this one seems very appropriate durint this time in our history.

    Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one.
    Thomas Paine

  14. Love the quilt!

    From Abraham Lincoln:
    "Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."

  15. my son's and his buddies battle cry that they learned in boot camp in Fort Knox, KY, at the age of 19 as he boarded the plane to travel to a 'hot spot' in the mid-east, but first called his dad to tell him how to split up the mere $10K US life insurance between him and his 2 babies the army was going to send us should he not return alive -- "IF YOU AIN'T CAV, THEN YOU AIN'T S--T!! rita

  16. God Bless America!!
