    Finished Quilt for Father-in-Law's 50th Anniversary

    I used the pattern Piece of Cake and a layer cake and fabrics from Heart of a Nation by Windham.

    I will start on mother-in-law's quilt soon. They will be married 50 years in December. I know mother-in-law won't share her quilt so I made one for father-in-law too.

    I don't know why the pic posted sideways. It is right-side-up in my files. Sorry!

    Great man's quilt. Not sharing might be how they've stayed together for 50 yrs. :-)

    Very nice!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    It looks wonderful! He will love it!
    It's nice that you're making your MIL her own! (then they won't fight after 50 years together!!)
