Red, White, & Blue

 This has been on my list since last July. I really wanted a patriotic wall hanging to decorate our "mantle" (we don't have a mantle, this is a little chicken wire bulletin board I use as an alternate). This table and "mantle" are located in between our kitchen and living room and is the perfect high traffic area to use for holiday displays. And Memorial Day is the perfect opportunity to display a little (or a lot!) of red, white, and blue. 
 The little quilt is made with 2½" squares of red and blue scraps. It's very similar to the pillow that I made for my mother-in-law for Christmas.

Not easy to see, but it is stipple-quilted with blue and red thread. 
The bunting was completed next - they are 4" triangles of red, white, and blue fabric that is included in the quilt. I love how festive it makes the quilt look.

 I'm happy with how these two quick projects came out and even more happy we now have a fun display at home to honor Memorial Day, Independence Day, Election Day, Veteran's Day, and any other day we just want to show our pride in the USA. 
P.S. The chicken wire bulletin board was purchased at Marshalls. The owl was a find at Michaels, and the photo books are from Costco.
