Do you ever wonder how you got so lucky to have such great people in your life? I surely do. My darling husband is one of 9 children, and I love all of my wonderful siblings in law and their spouses so very much. Ollie and Dee are the parents who started this huge clan.
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.
