    This topic has been SO uplifting!! 8-)
    Over the past couple of days, as I've looked through the amazing quilts made by our members here, I have felt like just standing up to cheer for the Red, White and Blue!

    Today, July 4th, it is made even more poignant because my SIL Bert - Captain of the battery of men blessed in the Military Barracks Quilt Project we did here - is on his way home from Farah, Afghanistan, after a year on duty. (Thank you Jesus!)

    Let's remember to do a show of our patriotic quilts again next year for this holiday, it really blesses!!

    Thank you bebe for starting it!
