    I had been working on a firefighter quilt for my best friend's 40th birthday (which is the day after Christmas) and I finally saw him yesterday and was able to give it to him. He almost cried when he opened it and he said he loves it and how do I top that was what he asked lol
    Here are some pictures of it and him with it.

    I don't see "him" but what I see of your quilt and quilting I absolutely love. No wonder he was amazed. Your quilting is just phenominal (sp? lol). Great job. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh I wish I could take credit for the quilting as it is absolutely phenomenal but it was done by a member of the board here. I pieced the top and did the binding-the actual quilting and the label were done by others (maybe someday I will be able to do both!)
    Thank you for your kind words.

    His pic just now came thru and he looks astonished, as well he should. I too usually have others quilt my quilts...and even do my binding. I am just not patient enough for hand work. I am always anxious to get to the next project. lol
    Hugs to you from a fellow quilter,
    Diane
