On the 4th Day of Christmas......

On the 4th Day of Christmas, I Give to Thee..............


The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines courage as the mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty.

When I think about courage, I think about the military men and women who fight to keep our country safe, here at home and abroad.  So I want to take this opportunity to thank ALL service men and women for their courage and dedication.

Military service runs strong in my family dating back to the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. My grandfather and many great uncles were soldiers during World War II.  My uncle was a soldier during Vietnam. I have cousins who were in the National Guard and several cousins who are currently in the Air Force.

My Courage quilt design is in celebration and remembrance of military men and women of both today and of yesteryear.   

Thank you.

While perusing blocks in Electric Quilt, I came across this perfectly wonderful patriotic star chain block.  The block doesn't really have a name and is simply  called "Star Pattern."  It  was published in American Needlewoman in 1926.

My challenge to you is..........have a courageous heart.
