My DH asked me to make him a train quilt (he collects trains). He wanted trains embroidered on squares.....I was not very receptive of the embroidering trains idea....so he said, "If you will make the quilt, I will embroider the trains." Believe it or not...I showed him how to embroider and he actually did it. He said "never again", but it did get him this quilt. The border is green and I quilted the border on my machine....tied the interior. I was sneaky and worked on it while he was at work....surprised him with the finished product for Christmas. He was delighted! Made me feel good.
