My poor hubby. He never asks me for anything, but 2 years ago, he requested that I make him a quilt. He suffers at night from a cat that won't stop snuggling him. If he moves, she wakes up mad and then meows like crazy, runs around the room and makes sure we all wake up. A most irritating feline. So hubby has resorted to staying as still as possible at night. It's his duty, afterall, not to wake the cat. Meanwhile, I'm a bit of a blanket hog, and I don't know how it happens, but in the morning all the blankets are on my side and often even hanging off my side of the bed. He wanted a little quilt to keep next to the bed, so he can reach over and cover himself with it without waking the cat. A reasonable request, no?
Right before Keith was born, I made about 5 quilts. I was nesting, lots of friends were having babies, I'd just gotten my QuiltEasy frame...I was on a roll. Anyway, I had made a quilt top for him and quilted it, and all that was left was to bind the edges. Then the baby was born, and who had time to work on quilts blah, blah, blah. So hubby's quilt has been sitting, unfinished, in a basket. Every now and then he'll ask me if I have any plans to finish it, and I just roll my eyes at him. Well, today, 'bless him, he kept the boys occupied for a couple of hours so that I could get it done. Without further ado, may I present.......the quilt that I couldn't keep my kids away from when I tried to take a picture. (I really should know better than to try this when they're awake.)
