A finished quilt is a great feeling, and I put the last stitch in Tommy's Kitchen Sink this afternoon. He had to throw everything and the kitchen sink at his illness and I hope this quilt brings some smiles.
I took this photo at my mom and dad's. Luckily I did not have to pay a location fee for the photo shoot.
However, a small blue Bear wanted to be in the photo. (My dad says *Bear is a camera hog.)
*Bear is my dad's companion.
The backing is two colors of gingham flannel in wide horizontal bands. (In this photo doesn't it look like the quilt is crossing its legs?)
My visit to my parents' house was twofold: taking pics of Tommy's quilt and also getting some measurements. Apparently my brother Ted felt Bear needed a pair of choners (shorts) for modesty while riding prone on the dashboard during a recent trip Ted and Dad took (his crack was showing!). I was telephoned from the road and asked to provide the clothing, since I live in the same town as Bear.
I think this recycled shirt is a good choice. Iron crosses are pretty manly, right?
Dad said posting Bear's measurements online would be rude, so they are a secret. Let's just say that Bear is apple-shaped and has healthy thighs.
