I can’t believe it is already almost the middle of June. Everything is blooming and my windows are open wide letting in all the breezes. With all the outdoor yard work and gardening, quilting has slowed down just a little bit. I have however taken the time to finish a project I started many years ago. In my closet are many quilt tops just waiting to be quilted. I have vowed this year to make a dent in what is hanging in there, so I pulled out a little patriotic top I made while at a quilt weekend in Rosemont IL during the big quilt show. Every year since I have wanted it done before the 4th of July. This was the year I finally got to it.
My goal this year was to get it done by June 14th, which is Flag Day. Every year on Flag Day my dad would hang out our American flag. I can still see it in my minds eye hanging there at the house where I grew up. He would then leave it up for June 15th, which happens to be my birthday! It made me feel so special. So this quilt is made with love in memory of my dad.
Happy Flag Day everyone!
