Venerable Veterans

To all who served, and are serving, in the military: THANK YOU!!   I’m proud to support our troops!  Proud to be an American!!

proud to be American

(I inserted my shadow so you’d know WHO is proud!  All 3 flag, and America pix are mine, from my home.  I can’t claim the pumpkin.  I found it on Facebook.)

We appreciate your sacrifices, protecting not only our country, but democracy around the world.

To veterans, I will add policemen, firemen, EMTs, Paramedics, and First Responders.  Thank you for your sacrifices to keep us safe.

     MY flag!!

America spelled out

All gave some, some gave all.

some gave all pumpkin

Pray for our troops.  And do all you can to support them.  They need us!  And we need them!

Quazily Quilting

Okay, here it is Wed. night, and SURPRISE!    I’m not done.   (Anyone surprised?  Anyone????)

Feverishly, I have been quilting.  (Why can’t I find a “q” word for feverishly??   Possibly because I’m quazy, and it don’t exist.   Naaah, that can’t be it.)

Anyhoo, the front is looking good!

Pardon me, my knee.

And the back’s not too shabby itself!

Back of quilt, with just a little wrinkle in time.

The back doesn’t have the same diagonal patterns.  I wanted to change it up some, so it has 4 squares in a block.

Different, but still co-ordinated.

Here’s the underside. Just had to show off those gorgeous seams!!

And look how perfectly those seams match:

mismatched seams

Oops! Editing FAIL.

Okay,  quit messing around!

Look how perfectly these seams match!!

perfectly matched seams

Aaaahhh! Perfection!

So, here it is :  the back is fini!!  Yay!  Can I get a communal big sigh of relief, please??  Thank you for your support!

Now, I have 2 whole days to finish the front and get it quilted.  Easy Peasy!  Just like Stella‘s comments!

(She’s a fellow seamstress, so just shamelessly plugging a friend’s site!)

SInce I’m off the chain for a few minutes, I’m gonna go get some food.  See ya tomorrow, with another update!  Same Bat time, same Bat channel!
