    that is so striking! and beautiful work! How long did it take you to do this part? I have this pattern also but have dreaded starting because it seems so intimidating. I love the needlework part of it but am not sure I will stick to it long enough to finish. Thanks for the inspiration. And, I would kick his butt too! Gorgeous!

    Just gorgeous! Black and white makes it look like the days when everything is covered in snow and all you see are the outlines of things. Your son had really good vision to want it in B&W. Winter is my favorite season!

    Thank you, it took about three months of on and off to complete, but have been working on many others as well. I know you can do it, and the thing is once you start ya just don't want to stop.

    Very, very neat! Very one-of-a-kind! This is gorgeous... Love any stars anyway....
    I'm making star blocks for my GS that will graduate in 3 yrs, the next yr his brother & my oldest GD, then the next yr her sister. Soo hope this is starting soon enough?... Girls are no problem but boys, whoa....... so I came up with stars & will incorporate some pieces from their Paw Paw's shirts,(my deceased hubby. Only 2 really remember him, he's been gone 11 yrs this Dec.) a block from their Grandma (my Mom) & maybe a Coca Cola patch from their Great Paw Paw's shirts (my Dad).

    Yes it is, thank you, I know he'll take good care of it, as the one I made him years ago is still just like it was just made.

    Thanks so much. Good luck with all your quilts. Such a great touch you'll be adding. My 2 older girls dad has been gone now for 32 years, and I know the really don't remember him to much, they were way to young at the time. There step-dad has been a great dad to them. I have really been blessed.

    That's really sweet. He will love to lie under it. Did you draw the scenes and words? Or did you find that somewhere? I like the black and white because it is a snow scene, and there's not much color in winter. Oh, for a little bit of winter today...it is going to be HOT HOT HOT here in SE Michigan again today.
