Labor Day

Labor Day is to celebrate the workers of America. I come from a working class family that worked in the steel mills of Western Pennsylvania and  from their hard work and dedication much of a America was built.
 A salute goes out to them today
Our House has another reason to celebrate today! Our Daughter Andrea's boyfriend  Seth has returned from a deployment of a year from Afghanistan in the Infantry. They came and visited with us for the weekend and we had a very enjoyable time. In  honor of him I am posting the latest QOV quilt I did.
Bill K. from Southern Penna. pieced the top. He wrote that his Sister in law had given him the material and he didn't know how it would turn out ( Bill likes very traditional patriotic colors) He wrote me after I returned it to him he was very pleasantly surprised and pleased to send it on to the VA hospital to a wounded solider or veteran.  Here is a close up of the quilting the pattern was Cascade Stars by www.quiltypleasures.com and the border sar and sash by www.onesongneedle.com
I hope you enjoyed your Holiday
