2009 Blogger's Quilt Festival
In a time of uncertainty, in a place filled with so much unhappiness, dissidence and despair, there are still things that I know to be true and to be real. I believe in goodness, in unity, and in the power of love and healing for all.
Patriotic quilts have always been near and dear to my heart...and I can't really even explain why. I don't have a family member in the military, but I support, wholeheartedly, our young men and women in the military. It may have been their choices to join,with full knowledge of potential outcomes, but nevertheless, many of them are suffering terrible consequences as a result of that choice.
We must still support their courage, their sense of honor and their loyalty to their country and to their fellow soldiers.Because of that, I honor those who serve our country, no matter what my own political beliefs might be.
Shown above is my quilt entered in Park City Girl's 2009 Blogger's Quilt Festival of favorite quilts.
My favorite quilt is, and may always be, my simple patriotic "Lest We Forget: Liberated Heartstrings". A quilt that honors, supports, salutes, and prays for freedom and peace for all.
