Memorial Day

Thank you--such small words--but I truly am grateful to those who fought for the freedoms we enjoy today. To those in the military--all gave some, but some gave all. Both my parents served in WW2--my dad was an army cook, in charge of an entire mess hall kitchen, my mom was a navy nurse, my uncle was in the navy, my husband was in the army--a Vietnam era vet, and one of our sons was in the navy. Our time in the military really helped us appreciate what we have in this country.

And now, how about a little patriotic quilt show?

I love how my friend Pam fussy cut the design for this quilt.

These two quilts are actually the same design, I think it's called "Calico Patch" by Jo Morton.

This is another Jo Morton design--Rally 'Round the Flag.
Turkey tracks.
Joy made log cabin table runners for each month. This is her July tablerunner. These are a few patriotic quilts my friends and I have made. I love a good red, white and blue quilt, don't you!

Till next time, keep stitchin!


  1. I like the patriotic quilt show. I think it would be fun to make a little rally around the flag one.

  2. Love the quilts. I have my red/white/blue log cabin quilt hanging proudly in my dining room. Continued thanks to all our military, past and present.

  3. Thank you for the patriotic show and tell, all of them are delightful!
