Lynn and Dave's Quilt

We rent our house. Well, actually we 'rent-to-own' our house. We have the most amazing Landlord EVER. We had about a week to find a house, get married, enroll the kids in school and move in. Luckily we found a bout we both loved in about 2 days. We moved in in August but didn't meet the people who actually owned the house until the following year. They had a rental company charged a ridiculous amount of money to do nothing, collected the rent and maintained the home. Since the people who own the home live out of the country, this seemed like a great arrangement for all. After renting the house for 2 full years, the owners have decided to lease-to-own the home to us. They are very generous and kind hearted people. They even send us a gift every year. We thought all of that deserved a thank you. So, the man picked out a pattern and the both of us rummaged through my stash to find fabric that would work. I couldn't get out of the house for a few days due to a blizzard so I made the whole quilt in about a week. It's amazing what you can accomplish when you are a prisoner to you home. ;)

Wish you could see the was great!
