I hope you have a wonderful 37th year baby cakes!!!
I did a little shopping yesterday and found some more 50′s shell art. I am starting to fill up my shell art shelf (that my dad made) in the sewing room!!

Here is the “Service Star” quilt I have on the coffee table. It is a free pattern and here are a couple links:
Another scrappy July 4th quilt:
Another Uncle Sam:
Lator Gators! Melissa
