Happy 4th of July!

We are having a quiet 4th here...well, sort of quiet. There will be fireworks down by the river near us.The explosions really bother our cats so we generally stay home to keep them calm...Macbeth, our deaf Scotty dog, gets upset by the cats getting upset so it is general mayhem for a few hours.

I've made several patriotic quilts but only kept one.  This is my husband's Goose on the Pond (photo is from my guild's show in 2009.)  He insists on having it up for the summer even though it doesn't go with our living room at all!  At least he likes his quilt...

I finished the 80 blocks I needed for the Corn and Beans.  I need to clean off my cutting table so I focused on finishing this morning...so difficult!

Hope you all have a wonderful Independence Day...and if you are in the USA I hope you find a way to stay cool!

Fortunately, we live in a quiet neighborhood as far as fireworks go but when there are scary noises about, we turn on the tv in the room where the animals are so they can't hear it.The Corn and Beans is perfect for summer :-)
Happy 4th!

I can see why Hubby likes to have his quilt up in the summer, it's a beauty. Love the Goose in the Pond pattern.

Goose on the pond has been on my bucket list and I think you just chose my color scheme. Very striking patriotic quilt! Love it.
