    I made this quilt for my FIL for Father's Day/Birthday - one week apart. The Long armer I use is backed up, so going to wrap up the top and take it right back to get it quilted...Kinda cheesey, but she would not have it done by June, so I wanted to wrap something other than a picture.....

    Since I will be taking this to my long arm quilter, she will give me many ideas...she usually has a really good imagination so I will probably just go with what she suggests.

    Was this quilt made from a kit from Hancocks/Paducah? I think I was contemplating getting it for my DH, but I rarely ever buy kits.

    It is fabulous. Love it. :)

    Really love that. Owe my son one for a couple of years now, you may have just given me the impetus to start it. Where did you get the center panel or was it all a kit??

    They do sell this as a kit on Fons and Porter website, but it was too expensive for me....The fabrics are from Wilmington Prints, so I went on their website and down loaded the pattern "Sanctuary" for free. Then went on quiltshops.com and bought the fabrics seperately. This was about $70 cheaper than the kit...I did change it up a bit though, not as many borders, etc.....
