Default DBILs Christmas Gift

I have the world's best brother in law. Over the years, I have made quilts and gifts for my sister, and things for both of them but never something just for him. So, this year for Christmas I made him this quilt.

Also, I belong to a singles dinner club where we get together for dinner on Fridays. There are 9 older ladies (past 55) and 2 boy toys (under 50). I made pincushions for my lady friends using a tut I found for the roses. Recycled a velour robe, and this is what I came up with. The 2 men are getting remote holders for their recliners.

Wonderful gifts. The quilt is perfect and the rose topped sewing kits are wonderful. They are all going to love their gifts, I know I would.

How clever you are! The quilt is lovely and I am sure he will be touched that you did it for him!
