Design Wall Monday - May 29, 2017

Today is Decoration Day, now called Memorial Day, when we honor those men and women who have given their lives in service to our country.  I will be remembering those in my family who have served our country.  My Dad and many of his brothers were all serving in WWII at the same time.   My memories of Decoration Day, when I was a little girl, were of going to the local cemetery for a memorial service in which my father as a wounded soldier, proudly took part.  





The above pictures are of Madeline Grace Wallace, then 4, carrying flags at the National Cemetery in Little Rock, Arkansas, May 25, 2012.  She was helping her mother, U.S. Air Force Tech Sgt. Wendy Wallace, honor the soldiers who died in protecting our freedom.  It reminds me of my childhood, helping my father at the cemetery on Decoration Day.

Here are two of my patriotic quilts:





And I'll close with Sophia Grace and Rosie, with their Memorial Poppy.  We hope you have something on your design wall to share with us today.
