DWM: Memorial Day

 Our church was well-represented in the Winthrop Harbor Memorial Day parade. (Stevens is in the back row behind Mel (in the red t-shirt).  The clouds rolled in, dropped some rain, and rolled out again.  

I will not need to take a walk this afternoon.

It feels odd to have an entire week of May ahead of us even though it's Memorial Day. 

"Every Quilt Tells a Story" was my program for last Monday's P.E.O. meeting.  It was also the last meeting for Mary Stewart. She and her husband have retired and are moving to Florida.  Daisy Patch was the chapter's gift to her.
The pattern is "Golden Splendor" by Ann Weber of the Gingham Girls. It was published in McCall's America Makes Scrap Quilts in 2008.  Linda W. pieced the back. I did the applique and the quilting. Linda bound and labeled it.

Another Daisy Patch is underway for Bonnie, another chapter sister who is also moving to Florida. Linda W. and I have the same division of labor. It's all assembled and I have begun quilting it. Bonnie's last meeting is June 14.

I finally made a green bubble block for this month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

"Chocqua" is the color combination for my next Heartstrings

Check out other quilters' holiday doings at Judy's Patchwork Times.
