    My Vintage Tin

    I bought this Crabapple Hill pattern about 4 years ago to work on during my husband's heart surgery and recovery. Luckily, his recovery went much faster than my progress on the quilt! I just recently completed it. I quilted it on my DMS. He loves old cars, tractors, etc. so it is for him.

    The first picture is the back. (First time to upload more than one picture.)

    beautiful job on this
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    This is wonderful. A great theme for car lovers. The embroidery is perfect.

    I know he will enjoy this quilt a lot - you put a lot of work into this. I admire people who embroider their work. I do a little (very little) and you've done a great job. Thanks for sharing.
