November in all it's Glory

Autumn is lovely here in central Idaho, in the Rocky Mountains. We lucky few who live here feel close to nature and close to our Great Spirit. We see wildlife that most people have to view on National Geographic, and our playground is so remote, even explorers such as Lewis and Clark avoided it.

 Veteran's Day is celebrated here with an award ceremony. Each vet is given a Quilt of Valor along with a hug and a thank you for service to our country. Here is my latest QOV, made in medallion style ala Gwen Marston. It is ready to pin baste. The center panel is the 50 state flags and their date of entry. My November goal, which I'll achieve by November 11, is to have it quilted and bound.
