    Took several months to finish this but my husband loves it. When he covers up with his quilt, he'll be covered by all of his kids, grandchildren, me and the love of the Lord symbolized by the cross.

    The back of the quilt.

    What a wonderful gift to both of you. You gave your time and efforts to gift your DH something he really loves. Your DH has gifted you with his appreciation. A Win-Win!!!
