    Surprise For My Favorite Brother-in-Law

    Jim's younger brother Chris has given us so many cute Halloween and Christmas decorations over the years. Next time I go home for a visit, he wants to take me to Sleepy Hollow. I am going to spring this on him when I get there. It is all batiks, front and back. 78 1/2 X 61 1/2 inches. I hand quilted a simple leaf and vine pattern. Cannot wait to see his face when I give it to him. Don't mind the cat hairs. It will get washed before I give it to him.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    It's a great quilt...love all the batiks in that arrangement. And you hand quilted it...he's sure to fall in love with it.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    That is a gorgeous quilt! Love your colors and your combinations.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
