Q is for Quilt

Today I'm tackling the letter Q for the A to Z Blogging Challenge, 2014. And for Q I'm going with Quilt. Specifically the quilt my wife, Melissa, made for me a couple years back.

About twice a year she goes on a scrap-booking retreat with friends and aunts and cousins. Usually she works on scrap-booking, but in 2011 she took it upon herself to surprise me by making a quilt at one of these shindigs. Since she knows I'm a Yellowstone fanatic, she found some quilt squares of old Yellowstone postcards and used those for the quilt.

Here's what it looks like:


Instead of making the backing with typical quilt material, she used an extra soft material. It's the perfect snuggling quilt.

Here's some of the detail:




This was the first quilt she'd ever made, and I couldn't have asked for anything better.




I may be biased, but I would have to say BEST QUILT EVER!

Thanks for stopping by!
