    I made the quilt "just because". Before i got the top finished, DH announced that it was for him, which is OK. He ONLY had 3 others, after all, since he gave the first one to a neighbor with pneumonia. Then he saw some of the quilting here and decided he wanted thick batting, to show off the stitching I usually do. Then he took some of the money from his yard sale and bought me a Janome 6600, so he wanted fancy stitching on all of the arcs. Then he worried that it might not be warm enough (This is a guy who had me make him a heavy wool jump suit and was only ever able to wear it for about 10 minutes because he is always hot.). I had to use heavy corderoy for the backing. This quilt weighs a ton. It was difficult to quilt and impossible to hang where I usually hang quilts to shoot them. The pictures are not what they should be. I hope you can see them OK.
