Memorial Day Sewing for QOV

I'm a day late in posting for Memorial Day, but in reality we shouldn't just be thinking of our troops and service men and women one day a year. While we were all celebrating our 'day off', I hope we sent prayers for those who are protecting and serving our country so that we can enjoy the freedoms that we so often take for granted They don't have days off.


I did grill some burgers yesterday, but it was really due to the fact that the wind wasn't blowing and not because it was Memorial Day.

I spent the majority of the day playing with 1/2 square triangles. I made 214 and started laying out my QOV:
There are 140 hsts here. I ran out of room so I'll start stitching and add as I go.

At the end of June we are participating in a Wounded Warrior Shoot and I hope to have this completely finished. Sure would like to have another one made too. :) However, if you don't hear from me, send out the quilting posse because it is very possible that I have been devoured by the HST that seem to be taking over my house.

What a lovely QOV! And you're absolutely right ... Memorial Day should be the *cap* of the 365 days that we give thanks to those who've served our country so graciously!
