Celebration At Last!

Bells are going off!
Confetti is floating in the air!
Hooray!!!! Post 1600 is finely here!!!!
I'm doing a happy dance right now and Mr. Cowboy is laughing his cowboy hat off watching me.
If you have stuck with me this long, you have definitely gone on a wild journey. Thanks for hanging around.
Now, let me give you an update on my venture into making quilts for the Veterans at my Senior Community Center. I have eight quilt tops made, four are already quilted so I've been on my knees getting the others sandwiched and ready to quilt.
My goal is to have them ready by November 1st. I can do it because these are small quilts. Just a token of my appreciation for the service of some wonderful men and women.
This particular quilt top I've had for many years with no real idea of what to do next but it's a great one to give to a Veteran. The photo is fuzzy for some reason....must be camera error!!!
This quilt I made last year and it's quilted as well. It's from my Fractured Star design. I added the white stars to give it a different look.
The winner of the final FQ is Joyce Carter whose favorite color is RED!!!!! Mr. Cowboy sends his congratulations because he was getting a bit worn out from pulling names from the old cowboy hat each week......LOL.  It's been so much fun doing these quilts for the Veterans and I thank each and everyone for participating and lending your suggestions.
I'll have photos in November of the festivities for the Veterans.
I hope everyone enjoys their weekend!!
