It is Memorial Day in the United States. For many, this means a three day weekend. For many others, it means so much more. It is a day that I feel thankful that my family and loved ones that have served their country made it home safe; and my heart goes out to the families and loved ones of those that paid the ultimate sacrifice.
Tomorrow, I will share more about the under the sea block I was working on. Today, I felt I needed to share something more patriotic.
Some of you may remember seeing this before. It was my July block for the Crazy Quilt Journal Project 2014 (CQJP 2014). My goal for the CQJP 2014 was to create 12 purses using the blocks for each month.
I plan to use the block as a pocket on a tote bag. The Susan Winget Stars on Wood fabric pictured above will be used for the exterior of the bag.
And, I think I have just enough of this print for the interior of the bag. The salvage of the fabric only contains part of the information about it, but it says it is from www.QuiltingTreasures.com (I did not find it in their current inventory) and it says American Valor Fabrics, American Valor Foundation.
I hope to have the tote finished to share later this week. Today, I am joining Monday Stitchery Link Party #7 at Super Mom - No Cape. If you do any hand stitching, I encourage you to join in the fun!
Thank you for stopping by.
