Memorial Day Weekend!


I hope everyone is having a great Memorial Day weekend! I found some great information on Memorial Day on the site. Information I didn’t know even having served in the military. You can go here if you are curious.

I completed the Americana II quilt top tonight. I wanted to have it quilted but my husband and I went out to lunch and Home Depot today. It was nice just the two of us. That does not happen much. I picked up some plants and hope I can get them in the ground tomorrow before work.

Here is the quilt, the picture is a little crooked but I think you can get the idea. It has a 5'” border and I am going to bind it in the same dark blue as the little 1” inner border. I have not decided what color thread I am going to use. I have to see what I have or I may be taking a trip to get thread on Memorial Day.


Have a super weekend and I hope you are able to find a little stitching time!
