Design Wall Monday

Freedom Isn't Free

On this Memorial Day I  feel so fortunate to live at this time in history.  I am a military brat. My mom was in the Navy where she met my dad. My dad is a retired Marine who served two tours in Vietnam. I'm so grateful he made it home both times.

The military always has been...and I suppose always will be a part of my life. I served four years in the Air Force. That's where I met my husband, a fighter pilot for the Texas Air National Guard. My sons both plan to join the service when they are through with college.

 I am so grateful to those who have served our country and to those who serve it in the future. 

In my quilting world I am struggling with the decision of fabric for Dresdan Plate centers.

Think I'm going with the dark centers.
I'm so grateful these are the toughest decisions I have to make today.

and thank you for your service as well! we are a former military family as well - my hubby not me.
I would go with the black centers they really pop the colors in my opinion.

I vote for the dark centre too - gives the blades a bit of punch!

Thanks to you and your husband for serving!
And the dark center for your dresden is perfect!
