Grace and A Prayer...........

In remembrance of 9/11, I decided to make a block for my "Grace and a Prayer" quilt. The block is for more than just those who lost their lives on 9/11 or lost a loved one then. It's for anyone who served our country in the military and those who loved them, from the World Wars to Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf War and Irag.


It doesn't matter who you are, where you live, what your faith is or isn't, or what your political views are or aren't. What matters is that we remember those who gave their lives and also those left behind. We just need to remember.
One day next week, I'll post a little tutorial on this block and some corner tips for any size block. Tomorrow, I'll get to those State Fair pics and the ribbon-winning quilts. Every day this week, I have been dyeing wool so I'll be posting about that next week. Lots of other fun stuff in the works, too. Oh, "sew many blessings" in life!
