The season of Red White and Blue

Memorial Day is one of my favorite holidays!  It's the unofficial beginning of summer.

Backyard picnics and barbecues, flags flying all over town.

Time to change the spring decorations to summer decorations.

With Memorial Day, Flay Day and July 4th so close together there is lots of red, white and blue to enjoy.

The bow tie quilt, perfect for Memorial Day and Father's Day.

Love me some red fabric!  Hard to choose a favorite bow tie, but this one is in the running.

This star border will always be a favorite and quilted so beautifully by Susan, the long armed quilter.

Yes, the dishes are included in the change of decorations.

There was one uninvited guest for the Memorial Day kick off to summer--poison ivy.  Yes, I'm talking to you poison ivy!  

Red, white and blue--let the summer time of celebration begin!


  1. Awesome rug and quilts! Three cheers for the red, white and blue!

  2. Everything is so beautiful! A lovely patriotic post! Ugh on the poison ivy. I HATE poison ivy!

  3. Since I'm working on a red and white bow tie quilt, I couldn't help but be drawn to yours! What a nice job! How did you piece yours?
