    I think your Bro is PRICELESS too! What a great guy! I use my 'learning' quilts as lap quilts at camp. They get loved on, snuggled in and used. And no one cares if they're wonky.

    This reminds me of a month or so ago when I finished the first quilt top I had ever designed and put together on my own. I spread it out on the bed of my daughter and son-in-love. (The law has nothing to do with it.) When he saw it he got tears in his eyes and said "You are a true artist!" Made me cry too.

    Wow! I think your brother is related to mine. That's what mine would have said. Your quilt looks so inviting to cozy up in.

    Aren't loving brothers wonderful!!! I know mine is. Of course I could be just a little prejudice, since I've only had one brother and no sisters in my life. We have always been close, and even more so now that we are both old, oops I meant to say both matured. Just goes to show you that not everyone thisks what we do and dislike is bad work. Someone always appreciates it even when we don't like it. I love the note. That looks like just a good warm snuggly quilt to me. Glad your brother came along before you had a chance to take it to the thrift shop.
