Bowties Quilt--Final Chapter

My mom sent me the photos from my brother's birthday party and the quilt presentation.  For those sick of seeing this quilt, look away!  But I promise this is the last of the posts on Tyler's Bowties.
My mom said it was hard to get a photo of just the quilt and us because there were so many people in the room!  That's Tyler's son Joey getting the first cuddle in on the end of the quilt.

Happy quilt owner.

Perusing the label.  His son Christian in the striped shirt reading the writing on the backing fabric--he immediately identified it as by Mark Twain, which was pleasing!

All smiles!

Smiles all around, in your family photos and from those of us following the creation of the Q. It's been a great journey to follow. The last photo of the quilt, the quiltmaker, and the quilt recipient is classic! Thanks for taking us along.

So glad you showed these photos. It's great to see how the recipient reacted when they received their pile of lusciousness.
