Happy 4th of July to my American friends. We're especially in a celebratory mood today as our grandson returned home this week from his 2nd tour in Afghanistan. He's also done 1 year in Iraq so we are thankful to know that his next assignment will be Belgium.
We've had a picnic going on in the house today. Tom has been busily working on his Teddy Bear's Picnic quilt that he started a couple years ago. Last I checked he was chain piecing more HST's and commented that if voyagers and fur traders could festoon themselves with bear paws, he supposed crazy quilters could do the same!
He's really making progress and those points are looking pretty darn good! He said if he has any brain cells left after piecing this many HST's, he doesn't think anything about quilting will scare him again.
It's going to be a great quilt!
