"Our America" Quilt



I was asking a lot of my sweet Larry..."Okay, hold it up off the ground...."



"The light would be better outside, let's try out there...."

"Okay. Could you hold the back up again...?"

"Pokey, do you know how hot it is?"

"Yea, but that time it looked like 'a man hiding behind the curtain shot'."


"That's it. We're done. You have to have a good shot there, somewhere!"

"I love you, Larry." "I love you, too, I held your quilt up, didn't I?"

(I'm grinning) ROFL

He's so good to me ~!
Happy Quilting! Pokey

  4. And your guy even wears a TIE to hold up a quilt! How elegant is that!? What a good sport he is, and what a nice-looking quilt you made. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Wonderful quilt! The star blocks and the crazy quilt blocks really compliment each other. I really like the white and blue striped inner border. Perfect.

    Thanks to your husband for holding it up so we could all see it. :-)

  13. LOL! I haven't asked mine to do any holding up yet because I can just imagine the groaning. Maybe if I show him that all the "cool husbands" are doing it. :)

    Love that quilt.

  15. Pokey, that quilt is beautiful. And a celebration of our country. Inspiring! And I love the way you did your label. The back is elegant. Thanks to Mr. Pokey for holding up the quilt so we could see it in the right light. ;-)

  23. Love it! I rigged up a makeshift clothesline in my backyard because my husband is never home when the light is good, and the other people in my house are too short! :)

  24. This makes me laugh! Husbands are such troopers (or in my case, 9 year-old sons)! It is a beautiful quilt! I'm a sucker for anything patriotic. Thanks for sharing!!

  27. I think all of us quilters put our significant others through the "quilt holder" job at one time or another. Loved this post! It sounds all too familiar and I too hope to have at least one good shot!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I put my DH through all that too...so funny. Your quilt is super! Great job.

  35. I just love this quilt. I am sucker for the red white and blue. It is just beautiful. I love how much we abuse our husbands with this quilting stuff and they just tolerate it because they love us so much.

    Kevin and I have been off work the last week and his parents are leaving from visiting us today but tomorrow I have a job for him to start! He is building me a quilting design wall. He is more than willing to help me and that is just how it is. They love us and make us happy doing what we love to do. You husband just seems so happy to help you! Steph
