This is my present to my husband on his retirement after 39 years with the RCMP. Each portion of the quilt represents some aspect of his career and, of course, our family. I put this together before I discovered Bubble Jet and would never wash this quilt...probably dry clean if necessary. I had a lot of fun making it and hiding it from him during the process. We used to keep it displayed at our previous home but this house is not conducive to displaying quilts...must change that.
