Happy Veteran's Day!

Thank you to all of our veterans and active service men and women who have fought and are still fighting for our freedoms!

Michele over at The Quilting Gallery is hosting a  Remembering Veterans Quilt Contest this weekend and my friend Kim Story and I have a duet quilt in the contest.  Hop over to the site and view all of the quilts and if you like ours best, please give us a vote!

Our quilt is called "Proud To be An American!"

Kim made the top for a combat wounded soldier and asked me to quilt it so I accepted.  I quilted the chorus to Lee Greenwood's "God Bless The USA"  in the border.

And I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free.  And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me. And I'll gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.  Cause there ain't no doubt, I love this land... 

God Bless The USA!!!

What a lovely quilt and a lovely thing to make it for a wounded soldier.
