DiVersity Heritage Quilt Show June 2017

 I wanted to share some photos from a Quilt show I went to see back in June. 
Their theme was "Women & War Story Quilts", very interesting & well done.

Each of the squares utilized the
 same background fabric.
The use of a military issue blanket, made for a great
background for these squares of remembrance.
