When mom asked for a quilt, we decided that our dad could use a quilt as well. His was a tag team effort. Renae found some solid color sheets that would match Mom's quilt, and sewed up a top/back in record time. Then it was sent to me for quilting and finishing. Unfortunately I am a LOT slower than Renae at getting things done. But both quilts were mailed and received last week, just in time for Mom's Birthday!
About Dad's quilt: Our dad is an Arizona boy transplanted to the cold! He and Mom constantly "discuss" the thermostat setting in their house, so when it comes to blankets he likes them to be BIG! Big enough to wrap his 6' self up good and tight. We made him a "couch quilt" that measures 70" by 90"! Huge by normal standards, but he will love it!!

Inspired by traditional rugby shirts and some of these quilts.
Here are the two quilts next to each other for comparison sake.
