Memorial Day Quilt

This is still a work in progress. The borders are not sewn together but this is the way it will look when finished. The outer border is fabric from the year 2000 - Millennium fabric and it has the year 2000 and the word Millennium on the fabric.
It's a good lap size quilt - about 48 x 60 - may be a little larger when it's finished.
I'll be making others to be given to the Veteran's Hospital but this one will stay with me.

Memorial Day, originally called Declaration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who died in our nation's service.
Let us not forget.
