    Hearts and tractors

    Two weeks before one of my coworkers birthday her husband called and invited some of us to a Surprise birthday party for her. Then he said they were going to renew their wedding vows, that was also a surprise. Her favorite thing is tractors. So because I thought it was the most romantic idea about the suprise renewal I got busy and made this quilt. It is from Eleanor Burns in Still Stripping afther 25 Years. 85" X 100". I quilted tractors in the triangels on the edge and included a strip of flannel on the back that had John Deere tractors on it. On Tuesday when we went back to work she told me red is her husband's favorite color! Glad it worked out for both of them.

    Awesome quilt in just 2 weeks. It takes me that long for an idea to percolate.

    An interesting combination. It makes it even more special when it is just for them.

    Pretty quilt. I've never seen that pattern before. I guess that adds another to my "to do" list.
