DK Quilt Guild: A place for quilters to gather, share ideas, projects, and to make the world a better place, one quilt at a time. Join us and share your thoughts, projects, questions, and tips. Quilters here are at many different levels of skill. Beginners and non-quilters are welcome, too!

The DK Quilt Guild Diaries usually doesn't discuss politics, national events, world events or elections. Life changing events occurred for many Americans this past week, and I would be remiss, if I didn't comment about them. My prayers and thoughts for all who have suffered from Hurricane Sandy. RIP to all those who have perished, and may all their loved ones find Comfort & Peace.

Please consider donating to the Red Cross, The Salvation Army, Feeding America or any other charity to help those in need. The New York Aquarium is underwater and needs financial help. The New York Aquarium is the home of Mitik the walrus. Don't forget our furry friends who may be in animal shelters because of Hurricane Sandy.

It's very important for all of us to vote and to encourage others to do the same. GOTV!

Today's diary will highlight "patriotic" quilts. Most of these are from various quilt shows, I have attended.  Please feel free to discuss or show your quilts or projects.
This first quilt was quilted by our own BeadLady.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
