I am so excited!
It's my turn to put up my blocks!
There have been so many beautiful ones, so inventive and creative.

I love being an American!  I love waving the flag!

So here goes.....

I love pinwheels!  And this fabric reminded me of Civil War times.  The soft muted red, rich blue and florals.  I bought enough of this fabric to continue making blocks.  I would love to make and finish a quilt for the Quilts of Valor.  Our veterans deserve our tributes.

Then for fun....
I did this....

Everyone who knows me, knows I love my "lil twister".  So I decided to play a little.
It was fun and made me smile.

Be sure you go and enjoy the others that are being posted today.
