    Made a simple quilt for my Hubby. I used some letter stencils that CRAFTY had put on the board as one of her links a while ago but I had trouble with the curvey ends-I'm just not that good yet!- so I cut off those ends and had a talk with POLLYV9 about applique stitching and I was able to complete the quilt for my DH. Thanks Crafty & Polly for the help!

    Very nice quilt. Can't show it to my DH because he has been asking when I'm going to do one of his corvette.

    My gosh, he is going to love it. He won't see one thing on it that is not perfect because he will look at it as a whole. Plus it is obviously just made for him and him alone.

    Great quilt. I remember my dad have a blue color chevy nova 62. We drove out west on route 66 with it just after he bought it. Great car.
