    Here is the quilt that I was hand quilting for my DFIL but he died way before I hardly even started! I stitched this while mourning. I lost both my Dad & DFIL in the same month, March if 2009.) It became my waiting quilt. Any where I had to wait I quilted on it. Once I finished I was so ready to be through that I put the binding on by machine!

    Here's a link to where I posted about it last fall!

    I like the whole cloth look of the back.

    My Stitches are bigger than I like. I couldn't stitch as small as the dotted line so I skipped every other one.

    Good to finish a project, isn't it? You did a pretty job, and now have it to remember your two dads.

    Maybe it should be named your 'patience' quilt. It is wonderful.

    It is sooo good to finish it! I had thought that I would give it to my DDIL but my DH wants to keep it for memories! This will be the first quilt I've ever kept. Now that it's finished I'm glad that he wants me to keep it!

    Oh yes you can! You start one stitch at a time & progress from there!

    I believe that quilting (especially hand) is Great therapy for me. It was so good every time someone went to the Dr.s office or to the hospital. (I have a big family!) It kept me calm.
