    Dive quilt

    I made this dive quilt for one of the young men that works with me at the local dive shop. His birthday was yesterday, and we will celebrate at work tomorrow. He asked for something with the dive flags back in the fall- has no idea I took him seriously. The placemats I just threw together from parts of a layer cake I've had for a few years. BTW, my table isn't dirty- it's in the process of being refinished. Other UFO's besides the quilting kind...Now to get caught up with the Sylvia's Bridal Sampler BOW! Thanks for looking.

    Applique. The lettering is from MS-Word. The diver was a pic I found online and blew up.

    What a great quilt, and I love the wording on it. This is one of those that I would enjoy warching his face glow as he opened it up, I love your design. Also I don't think I would have even noticed the 2 toned table top because your place mats are to cute to see the table underneath.
