    That's one of the best stories I've heard!!! If your brother is single, he shouldn't be for long, I just hope he finds a girl as nice as he is!!

    What a great brother you have and he has a treasure quilted by his sister.

    He sounds like my late brother. He passed in 2006 and I miss him so much. He and I were always so close and joked with each other all the time.

    Thanks for sharing your story and the picture of the quilt. Makes me want to go make one of those. I love quilts like that makes me think of the ones my grandmother and Mama made.

    My sister and her family broke into Mama's home while she was in the nursing home and stole all of Mama's quilts. So sad.

    A great story after those who have had quilts unappreciated. He's a wonderful brother.

    Loved the quilt and your brother.. We have to learn to appreciate our work, remember you know it wasn't what you wanted, but, to someone else it is the best... :-o
