    Mr. Fix-It's Quilt

    I made my hubby a quilt for his birthday. He is a true "Mr. Fix-It" so this fabric was perfect for him. I don't think there is a tool pictured that he doesn't have at least one of! He was so surprised and delighted and I was happy I was able to pull off the surprise.

    He looks like he was very pleased with your surprised. You did a fantastic job making this quilt for him.

    This reminds me of that show Tool Time. I loved that show. Does hubby "soup" up everything like he did? LOL... Just kidding around with you.

    I am sure he will treasure it because you thought to make something for him. It is amazing how much guys love quilts. When I first started quilting, it was the guys who made over the quilts the most.

    super great quilt
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
