What better way is there to commemorate life’s milestones than with a homemade quilt treasure? It is one of my favorite gifts to give friends and family.
This 4th of July my family had the privilege of going to Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello to see the annual Naturalization Ceremony they have there to swear in new United States Citizens. Everyone should go to this ceremony at least once to be reminded of the wonderful things our country stands for. We sometimes take for granted the freedoms and privileges we have here as Americans. It is wonderful to see the variety of people choosing to become American citizens.
What was also special was hearing some of the new citizens speak about their journey and what it has meant to them.
One of our family’s friends became a Naturalized Citizen on this day and that was our primary reason for attending the ceremony. What a wonderful and blessed day it was.
I wanted to give my friend a reminder of her special day that was homemade and just from me. You can take simple quilt panels and turn them into small wall hangings by adding a sleeve on the back.
Here’s the memento of the day. It was such fun to make and I hope she will enjoy it as a reminder for years to come.
Would love to hear about your special quilts and how you came up with the plan for the special remembrance.
Until next project…
