Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day, Everyone! On this day of remembrance, we think of all those who have died in our Nation's service, including Erwin Harder and Andrew Shields. We hope all of you will have time to spend with friends and family. Have a safe and happy holiday weekend.

Quilt 139 - Patriotic Scraps to 12

This is Armed Forces Appreciation Weekend. We post this Patriotic Quilt as a reminder to thank all of our Armed Forces Members for their service. This is a pattern I designed to use up fabric that is donated to the different charities that I am involved with. We use this pattern "From Scraps to 12" often in the making of quilts for the "American Hero Quilts" project. Please check out the website and if you can, please help with this project. The quilts are greatly appreciated by the wounded service members who return from Iraq and Afghanistan through Madigan Hospital in Tacoma, WA. My azalea is blooming a bit late but it sure was worth the wait.
