We shopped for fabric, didnt buy enough and had to go back and match it to the original colors bought. She also wanted to cover the back in an anchor fabric which is not real easy to find....at a reasonable price.
I will admit, this quilt is made with blood, sweat and tears...plus frustration, unkind thoughts toward the magazine, and sometimes a spirit of giving up. But she persevered and it is gorgeous! I lost track of how many times he called as she was working on it and asked what she was doing.....her response, "working on an old quilting project that Mom wanted finished. " Technically the truth.
Heres some pictures -
|the top is finished!|
|The finished quilt|
|She was so excited to give it to him~|
|He loved it! She found the canvas Anchor bag at JoAnns to use as her gift bag.|
And what will happen to the magazine? She is going to start our next bonfire with it. This is and always will be a one of a kind quilt.
