    Carpenter's Star for a friend

    The father in law of a friend of mine recently had a stroke. I decided to make him a lap quilt. Unfortunately, I had a lot of delays in the process, but it is finally done and ready for delivery. The older gentleman is still a hard working man and loving to his kids, grandkids and great grand kids. He has done a lot of masonry around our town, but I decided not to do the Mason's star.

    The whole family is great. They have all made my DH and me feel very welcome at their family events. If you have ever been to a fiesta thrown by a large and loving Mexican family, you will understand how welcome we have felt. I have made several quilts for this family and their business, both as gifts and as commissions from them and am fairly certain that the WHOLE family loves quilts. I was very upset when El Senor had a stroke, so I wanted to give him some pleasure. BTW, I know the old gentleman loves his flock of chickens too.

    I love your quilt. I have made some tabletopper Carpenter's Wheels, but would love to make a quilt your size. How large were your half square triangles?
    We must be neighbors as I live in Folsom, the foothills of Northern California.
