Gifted Quilt

By the end of 2012, I was seriously behind in gift quilts:  weddings, graduations, babies, etc.  It will take a while for me to get caught up, but I am working on it.

My RockStar hubby is a drummer and his guitar player recently (a year or so ago?) had a second son.  Last week I packed up the quilt for hubby to take to band practice, but once I realized that I had no photos of this quilt, I frantically texted him during his drive SCREAMING at him to not give the quilt away.  Fortunately, he read the text and returned the quilt.  Phew!  A week later, the quilt has been photographed and delivered.

The backing (wild, right?):

My friend Harriet and I started this quilt as a mystery class a long, long time ago.  I wonder if she ever finished hers?

My husband forwarded this note from his guitar player today:
Thanks again to Debbie for her most excellent quilt!Colin and Max were both enjoying it on the couch last night (both in warmth and pillow forts)
Pillow forts ROCK!

Sweet! I do love when gift quilts get played with right away and that they will get used up by getting loved to death :0). Nicely done.

Happy Sewing

My kind of wild and fun. I remember blanket forts very well. It may be time to build one for the grands!
