Two years is way too long for someone special to receive a quilt! But when you have more ambition than ability at the time, it's totally understandable.
I started this quilt as a thank you to a special scout leader named Chip. He had a great influence on the boys in our pack and now in the troop. What I admired about him was his willingness to give of himself, a trait that is lacking for allot of us in this day and time. And he made time for my kid, the Rock Star. The Rock Star got interested in guitar because of this man.
He's like that with other kids as well, and makes time for his family, too. For those of you who have read about my adventures with Jane, he's her other half.
Here's the label that Debra made. Isn't it grand? Go and see her for your label needs, too!
He looks happy and he was over the moon about it. Chip even took it to his special music room to see where he'd like to hang it.
Words really can't express everything I learned while doing this quilt. Just a few things, machine applique, machine quilting, using a quilt pounce, binding, measuring, and figuring out my creative style. I think I was more blessed by doing this quilt than any so far. I'm just tickled it's going to such a special man!
