Too weird?

Suddenly, this quilt has a voice.. I always meant for the quilt to feel "summer" "patriotic".
The idea came because this month is Quilts For Valor month at our guild. Its very doubtful that I will give this away, Im kinda really loving it... Really Loving It! ... It is an Election Year and the Olympics.... and Maybe I'm processing all this Woman hating rhetoric I'm suddenly hearing. Hey Women are Americans too..
What do you think? too flag wavey? just right?

Well, if I'm being honest my first reaction was the "usa" was cheesy but then it grew on me. I am not sure you are there yet but i love what you have going and i like why it is there. I wonder if there is a way to get the same point across without it glaring. IDK because again, it grows on ya.... Hummmmm I'm going to think on it a bit longer. I love what you are doing and I love the "A" and the wonky geese and the colors and and .....

Part of me wants to say: avoid... however, the other part of me says go for it. I think I'm generally turned off to patriotic things, but this is really cute, and not totally in your face... and we do live in the USA. Maybe it's time to make patriotism a radical thing ;)

I love it! My husband is retired Navy and I personally don't think there's enough patriotism these days so I say go for it!

I don't blame your hanging on to this one; the mix of colors and prints is wonderful.
