Memorial Day 2016

Memorial Day, May 30, is a day to remember the more than one million men and women who died in military service to the USA.  The flag is a symbol of the freedoms they fought for, which we enjoy today. This twister quilt sparkles with red, white and blue pinwheels which are beautifully framed by a bunting border print.

Long May You Wave by Judy Pedersen

If you would like to make your own flag quilt for patriotic holidays, check out our Free Pattern Day for Patriotic and Flag Quilts:
