Design Wall Monday


This Memorial Weekend my sewing time has been spent on this donation quilt for the VA Hospital, here in SW Washington.  Makes my weekend quite special as I think of all the men and women that have fought for our freedom.  

I'm using the free Boxy Stars pattern from Quiltville.  During retreat last week, I had planned to get the blocks all done but that didn't work out.  Some of these blocks were made my my friend, Sonya during retreat.  Now I will get the sashing, cornerstones and borders cut and this top will be handed off for the quilting and binding.  I hope it makes someone feel special.  Because in my eyes, they are.
