Happy Memorial Day



 Happy Memorial Day! I'm truly thankful for all those who have served and given their lives for our great nation.  My favorite Veteran is, of course, my Dad who served in the Navy in World War II. He passed away almost 25 years ago, but not a day goes by that I don't think of the important life lessons he taught me.

So I'm spending Memorial Day getting out my red, white and blue quilts . Two of my favorites are the Schnibbles above, "Good Fortune" on the left, and "Ric Rac" on the right.



I've also changed out the quilts on my ladder to make a patriotic display. I realized in doing this that nearly all of my red, white, and blue quilts are pieced with Minick & Simpson fabrics! 

I hope to get in a little sewing today...and most importantly finalize my summer quilting projects!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Love your quilt ladder with the patriotic quilts. My father also served in the Navy during World War II. He passed away 7 years ago. He was the best and always taught me to stand up for my faith. (II Tim 2:15)

This is one of the days I think of my Dad, too (he served during WWll, and he passed away 35 years ago, he was only 54). I LOVE red, white and blue quilts...and when the fabric is the best, why not make LOTS. Enjoy your blog every time I see it!!
