    The picture doesn't do it justice..my first bed quilt! He loves it and I managed to finish it at 7:30pm January 25 just in time before he went to bed for the night..I have been very sick this past year and I can't tell you how many times he came to visit me, keep me company and show me how much he cares. He absolutely loves the Jamaican Rasta colors of Black, Green, Red, and Yellow...I put in a Bargello twist into the pattern. My DH stayed up with me almost every night for two weeks measuring, cutting, and pressing..in order to meet the deadline..Here it is..The Rasta Bargello. Blessings to all there is one pic of it layed out on his bed and the other one is right before I put the binding on ...

    That is a true family treasure and I'm sure he treasured all the times he was able to spend with you.
