Millstones and Milestones…..

Our eldest brother Norman turned 70 today. He is a modest kind of guy who insisted that no fuss be made. He was heard to mutter more than once that another year was just another Millstone around his neck, We kept saying it was a Milestone not a Millstone.

So here it is, his Millstones and Milestones quilt.

Normans quilt full shot

Peggy pieced the top, I quilted it and Peggy applied magic binding.
