Carpenters Star for Ollie by me

Ollie's profession was as a contractor building houses, and one of his hobbies in singing in a Barbershop Quartet.  I saw this pattern in a catalog and just knew that I needed to make it for Ollie.  I used a wood texture fabric for the background, then just raided my stash for the rest of the pieces.  It is quilted with a music note pantograph to reflect his singing.  I used wool batt for the warmth and loft that it gives the finished quilt.  

This is a bit of overkill for their house as Dee is a lifelong crafter as well, I'm sure that they have a multitude of afghans that she has made, but I still wanted to do this little thing for him.
