Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day
Many Thanks to Those Who Serve

I've had a wonderfully busy few days sewing up a storm.

We had a great guild meeting a couple of weeks ago where one of our members showcased this table runner. Thank you Jean. The pattern is by Margie at Ribboncandyquilts.  
Saturday evening on our way home from dinner I decided that making them for my dinner guests on Sunday was a great idea. I'm blaming the wine.

I finished them with 2 hours to spare.  I like them so much I want to make 3 - 4 more for gifting for The 4th.

I got this pattern early in the week just because it was so cute.  It is from Lorna at  Sew Fresh Quilts.
I started it Friday night and finished it up on Saturday afternoon.  It took about 9 hours from start to finish including the hand work on the binding.

The down side to all this sewing is that the girls were not happy with me.

They think making the bed is a team project and here they are waiting patiently for the team leader.

Today I'm celebrating the holiday with them. Apparently Nettie believes my promise. Celie not so much.

No matter how you celebrate, thank a Service person and be safe. 


  1. What cute patriotic quilties and perfect for your guests. Oh that wine does have a way with our thinking doesn't it! LOL!!
    Love your ducks, even if the "girls" are over the time it took away from them. Lorna's quilt patterns are so much fun to stitch.

  2. How great that I got to see all these - except for Nettie and Celie - in person! You always sew such great things. And I'm impressed that wine motivated you to sew those table runner. Wine usually turns me into a worthless lump!

  3. Man, I wish I had been one of your guests... Lovely!
