    Answer:
    You get my new quilt top (I only finished the top at 4:30 AM) aptly named: "Churning Stomach"

    It's for my husband who absolutely loves food. He watches Food Network like it's going out of style and has I don't even want to know how many cookbooks.

    So yes, he just needed to have a food quilt. He loves the block the Churn Dash, so I was going to do that in different colors and things that meant something, but food just kept coming back to the forefront. It was originally going to be for his 30th birthday in May, but by April I had only finished 4 blocks. Then it just got pushed off until yesterday when I was without a laptop.

    I got a really bad computer virus and everything had to be totally wiped on my laptop - so without this board, I just sewed, and sewed and sewed.

    CJ - I'm not sure. I know he's seen some of the food fabric, but not the full thing. :) I'm going to have one heck of a time trying to quilt it without him noticing.

    He does cook. Loves to. In the 5 years we've been married I don't think that we've had the same meal more than 3 times that he's cooked. Me on the other hand, I repeat my meals!
