Veteran’s Day


It’s been a busy week. I sewed this top together at the Beach Retreat weekend and hoped that I could get it quilted in time to bring it to the Calico Cutters Guild meeting on Wednesday. When I pulled it out of the bag, I decided an outside border of the lighter blue and white corner stones was needed. I just barely managed with enough fabric. Now to quilt it and add a red binding.  


The flag block was super easy and sewed together quickly. I saw the quilt on Pinterest and just made up the measurements myself, a little too large, maybe, finishing 9 by 11 inches. The completed quilt will be donated to Quilts of Valor. It seems appropriate to load this quilt on my frame today. I will be thinking about veterans and military members and thanking them for their service and sacrifices for our country.

  1. This is beautiful! I’m hoping to begin a flag Quilt for my sister after the holidays. She is a school teacher and loves all things patriotic and USA and enjoys sharing her love of this country with her students.
