    Some of you's have seen this quilt before. The pictures, I posted was just the top. The quilt is completed/batting/backing, and machine quilted. 2 picture of the quilt, and 1 picture of my quilt inspectors(ha-ha). When my son get's home here in a couple week's, I'll post a picture or 2 of him in front of the quilt. Don-isewman Take care everyone, and happy quilting...

    1st picture is of my quilt inspectors. They all hog the chair, and when I'm sewing or what ever, I sit on the edge of the chair..

    There really isn't much difference on this picture, than the picture I posted of the top, except this quilt is done now. And ready to give this to my son, when he get's home..

    Hey, Don. I was wondering where you have been. Now I know....WOW! What a wonderful gift you have for his return! And I love your inspectors! Mine are a little bigger (a rottie & a Great Dane).
