More Jane blocks and a Dedication
It felt good to be back on schedule this week with 6 blocks on the tally wall.
I created a very special block this week from fabric I received a while back from my dear friend Beverly of Heartland Creations
Beverly's father passed away last week. Her father was an honorable man and a true Patriot. In 1944 he fought for our country at the Battle of the Bulge and was taken prisoner. He became a POW in a slave labor camp under brutal conditions for nearly a year before being rescued. He was a true American Hero that made great sacrifices for our country. I found the perfect block to sew & dedicate to the memory of her father Jay. It's block D10 titled Battlefield This block will always be a reminder to me of Jay and all the other heroic soldiers that have gone to battle to fight for freedom!
My name is Doreen aka Aunt Reen.
I've been a passionate quilter for 30+ years.
I love all aspects of quilting and find great joy in teaching and in learning from other Quilters. I am especially fond of sewing small scale quilt blocks and also enjoy applique'.
