    Picture of my brother receiving his quilt today

    He looked happy! Posted a story last week about this quilt I made for him. He is recovering from a carotid endarterectomy and a triple bypass. He loves everything about trains and makes train modules and sets them up at shows. He has won many prizes. I used double batting because he is always so cold. I'm glad he liked it.Oh, that's me in the picture with him.

    I love the way you put those panels together with the blue and cream blocks. My hubby and one grandson are train nuts, too, so I appreciate it especially. Brother is a lucky guy to have you!

    Nothing better than to have it loved and appreciated.

    I normally do not like novelty fabrics or picture panels ... but I really do like this quilt. The colors and the setting are spot on it just looks right! Well done.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
