This was a very large quilt and the back is pieced with two large pieces of green fabric. The quilting is stich in the ditch because I just couldn't stomach possibly running this quilt with my stippling. The whole time I was making this I thought about who I would give it to. But now I can't part with it. It will be added to our collection of couch quilts that we use when we watch t.v. I would take it to a picnic but I am afraid it would get dirty.

I invited him to attend the guild meeting to present his quilt at show and tell but he was too embarrassed. I let him know there were male quilters in the world and in fact my guild has two. But even the enticement of a desert table could not get him to go. Instead we faced timed when I presented the quilt to the guild and let them know who had pieced it and that we were donating it to charity. He was very happy with that and the guild was very responsive to his efforts.
