    Gotta love FIL Tony

    We had an unexpected visitor last week. Paul's father Tony shows up from Hawaii. Tony is 83 years old and a real character. While visiting he saw and was shown the quilts I was working on, he strongly hinted he would like a quilt. (OK, he is 83, I cannot take forever to make him a quilt). Since he is from Hawaii, I did not want to make anything too hot. My SIL had told me she had crocheted an afghan but it was too hot for him. So 2 layers of flannel, no batting, minimal machine quilting, no hand quilting, embroidered label. Tribal masks in blue flannel. Will be mailing it to him today. Hope he likes it!! Fast and sweet!! Tony is sitting down! That is my hubby, step-son and grandkids!!

    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    Oh! I've seen that fabric and loved it but didn't know what I would do with it. Thanks for the inspiration - and thanks for posting the photo of your exceptionally good-looking family!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Well Tony looks like he's healthy and can enjoy this one for a long time...
    Absolutely love that totem (?) fabric.
