This finish is for my Grandfather. We are celebrating his 90th birthday this weekend, and this is my contribution.
My grandfather is a remarkable individual. A WWII veteran and POW, and farmer and entrepreneur. He made, and lost, several fortunes over his lifetime. He was all too often a man ahead of his time, thinking great big picture before his contemporaries were ready. My grandmother died when I was only 10, and I can't say he was the most involved of grandfathers after that, but I still admire many things about him and love him very much. He's actually become much more involved recently. He dotes on his great-grandchildren, and gets the biggest kick out of Isadora running up to give him hugs.
This is made from a kit from the Fat Quarter Shop, that I've had for quite some time. When he saw the quilt I made for Grandma and Grandpa asked where his was, this was the obvious choice. I love the regal, masculine colors. I backed it in a flannel, as lately he is always cold. Hopefully he will be around to enjoy it for a while longer.
