Before I go into our class fun and photos, I want to take a moment to recognize November 11th as Veteran’s Day.
To those who have had Fathers, Grandfathers, Great-Grandfathers, Nephews, Sons, Daughters, Grandmothers, Mothers,Nieces, Sisters & Brothers, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and friends in service of Freedom, wherever you are from – These blocks are for you!
Actually, they were made by one of our cruisers who is taking her brother’s BDU’s and making him a Veterans quilt! Awesome with ALL the sauce!
It was not going to be done by today, but hopefully she got some time to work on it today, and I think it is such a wonderful way to capture the memory of time given in the service of our country and the hope and longing for freedom for generations to come.
Happy Veteran’s Day to our Veterans! Happy Remembrance Day if you are from England, Australia, or anywhere that calls it by that name.
We salute you!
Two girls from Alaska!
I hope they took some sunshine and warmth home with them!
My Indiana Crazy Bunch! SO much fun to spend the week with them all!
Of course I also had a great time teaching with this lovely lady, Kim Diehl!
Oh Happy Blocks!
The pattern is Texas Tumbleweeds from my book MORE Adventures with Leaders & Enders. Signed copies can be ordered by clicking HERE.
I know you will be bored with 4 posts from 4 separate, yet the same classes, so I am combining our workshops into one slide show below….

As Veteran’s Day comes to a close, It brings to mind this thought:
In August I was in London when this exhibit of red ceramic poppies in remembrance of World War I was going up around the Tower of London grounds. It was amazing then, it is beautifully heartbreaking today. Happy Veterans Day to our veterans and the families who also gave so much in their absence.
Today the poppies are in my heart.
