    I love strippy/string quilts; yours is very cozy looking.
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    I like that one.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    Great Red, White, and Blue! My Dad was also in the Navy, for 30 years. He would have loved it! I quilt because his Mom, my Granny was a quilter! She passed the love on to me.

    Awesome quilt. I love it and I'm sure he will also.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
