This is a repeat post from last year. I only had 6 followers then. Thank you to all who have joined to follow me and thank you to our veterans.It doesn't take much thought today to be grateful. I am so grateful for our men and women who have served our country through their unselfish loyalty to the military. I especially want to honor my dad, father-in-law, 6 uncles and numerous cousins and friends who have served in past wars and to all the brave men and women who are actively serving today, I say, "THANK YOU"!
It's a different world now and protecting our country and our allies is a true calling.

So I decided to bite the bullet and attempted to FMQ the Baby Carrot quilt. I threw caution to the wind, went for it, said "what the heck", and just did it! My goal was not to make perfectly even stitches or an awesome pattern. My goal was to not have to rip any thing out and to do it without any puckers on the back. Mission accomplished! Like my husband says, "it's a quilt". The hand stitching around the pinwheels is almost finished. I machine quilted straight lines in the sashing and did squiggly swirls in the middle of each pinwheel. Yippee! I did it and I can only get better from here because it is terrible but I don't care because I didn't get any puckers on the back. This should be in the mail by next week.
