A quilt for mom and dad

Today, I would like to show off my favourite homemade gift from Christmas 2014. With help from my sister, we came up with the idea With help from my brother, the outline was made. And with help from my other brother ( my sewing machine) the Tyson Lake lap quilt was born.

I love map art right now, so this was a great project for me to do. If I had allowed myself more time, I would have done a tight zig zag around the entire lake instead of a straight stitch. Sometimes, the worst part of doing homemade gifts, is having to give them away. I fell in love with this quilt. Luckily I kept the template, maybe I'll get around to making one for myself this year .
