Quilt on an actual Bed!

A wonderful friend/customer sent along this picture of a FINISHED quilt as soon as it was bound. Shocking, I know. Quilts look so much better on beds!

This reminds of my parents' bed. My dad would come home from his stressful day (elementary school principal) and want to take a nap. Instead of removing all the pillows, he would flip up the quilt on the end and lie along the bottom end. These power naps helped him quite a bit and mom never had to re-make the bed!
