Today is Memorial Day and the shorts are on hold until our charge returns from a camping trip. Over the weekend I decided to take advantage of a few sales and drive out to a cute little quilt shop called Quilt in Joy for their first ever clearance sale.
I decided to pick up Red, White and Blue fabrics and start a little mini collection. I was a little inspired last week from the Quilts of Valor Sew-In and surprised at just how quickly one of these string quilts goes together. Here’s a fellow that can give a lesson if you care to take a looksy.
and here. And just to quote Al, “Get Off Your Duff and Quilt!”:
and Dad…if you ever do get too hurt from golfing you can always follow Al’s directions here…
Al’s my new quilting hero. I read an article that said he’s made about 400 of these quilts. Truly amazing and he really cares about letting those service men and women know they are appreciated.
