For my sibling's 50th birthdays I made them each a quilt. I made two identical quilts like this.
For my sister I hand-quilted this, my brother's was machine quilted. Barbara had made quilts and knew what hand-quilting meant. Guys who aren't into sewing? Not so much.
This Trip Around the World became a security blanket to one of her grandsons. Apparently they wouldn't take a nap until they were snuggle with the quilt.
When more than one of her boys decided they needed the quilt, the younger suggested cutting it in half!
Obviously THAT didn't happen.
