This is a Memorial Day rug Polly made and my attempt at a quilt using the same imagery. There is a story about how Polly got inspired to make this rug. It includes a long ago memory of parades, ice cream cones, bicycles, and flags. You will have to take Polly's word for it - as I have no memory of the event. It does include people and landmarks I know to be true - so I believe it.
Have a great holiday with family and friends, and remember those who have served.
