they were the right colors for a 7-yr old. i don't think i would choose those colors for a grown man. but he's seen them for so long now they seem right to him. he says he can't imagine it any other colors.

Great job! I admire you, I can't remember how I wanted to do something a year ago, much less 33 years ago!

to tell the truth, the longer i took to finish it, the more i couldn't stand the thought of looking at it. if my daughter hadn't gotten on my case, it would still be folded up somewhere. of course, she's waiting for her own 33-yr-old-quilt now. it just needs pics, then it goes to her house.

Worth the wait! Gives me hope--if you can finish a quilt after all this time, maybe I can finish some of my UFOs too! I'm sure he loves his quilt!
