    Talking Here's my latest creation......

    A friend of mine and her boyfriend asked me to make a quilt for her dad who's suffering from his second bout of lung cancer. The only requirement was that it was long enough for him to tuck in under his chin and feet and was a Pittsburgh Steeler quilt.

    Well, here it is! I'm so pleased with the way it turned out. Especially the border. I would love to see his expression when he receives it.

    The pattern is Cheaper by the Dozen by Atkinson Designs. I use the same pattern but smaller (called Cheaper by the Half Dozen for my charity quilts.)

    Thanks for looking.

    It's wonderful. He will love it.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.
