    My DD wanted two quilts. One for MIL and one for FIL. They are divorced so I needed to make two for Christmas. I already posted the John Deere one so now I want to share the other. Their interests are bowling, pigs, classic cars and dogs. What a challenge. DD found a pattern and picked all the colors for this quilt. It's colorful. Future FIL and his new wife loved it. They called and thanked me. I've never had that happen. Anyway here it is in all it's bright glory. It's a king size so taking the pic was interesting.

    It's not quilted yet in this pic
