My Big Brother

Saturday morning, July 14, 2012, my big brother lost his battle with lung cancer. Our father died when I was 7 years old and my 17 year brother became my father figure. He was there for me if not physically, emotionally.

On June 2, 1962, he married his wife, Louise and I was their maid of honor. They celebrated their 50 years together this year. Last year I gave them the mystery quilt I completed on the eve of their 49th anniversary, just before they arrived for a visit, I'm so happy I did!

Thank you, Ervin & Louise! I love you both.

Red, White & Blue Blog Hop!
I'm excited about being included in the Hop. I had fun doing the Starry block and then remembered that I have a large Log Cabin quilt started in Red, White & Blue and though perhaps you would like to peek at them too.

Then there was the very first thing I ever made in Red, White & Blue.

Red, White & Blue Blog Hop!

So Easy and colorful to do a R,W, & B block. Simply cut out 4 stars from a 'cheat fabric' and added them using your favorite applique' method to a simple square in a square. I have really learned to use a stabilizer when machine appliqueing and found some rolls of paper on the Internet that the doctor's office uses. It is inexpensive and works great. Very striking the Red, White and Blue color combination!

Quilting can be easy or hard depending upon what you want. The easier the better are my thoughts. I will probably make them into place mats, just in time for Veterans' Day in November.
