Jerry's Quilt

The same week my grandparents passed away I found out one of my bosses was retiring and moving to NE. I really liked him and he was super supportive and friendly. My new co-worker friend Karen and I decided to make him a picture quilt. She did half the blocks, I did half and quilted and bound it. We had our marketing department take thepictures of all the departments and I used the June Tailor sew in fabric for the pictures. We put white on the back so everyone could sign it at the party. It turned out BIG for a wall hanging, but he has a big office at his farm house, so that is where it hangs. We made it in under 3 weeks. This is when we presented it to him. I'm on the left, Karen is on the right. We did a green grass border because he's a golfer. He still works for us on occasion and I see him about every three months. He's actually the one who encouraged me to apply for my current position and I'm so thankful I did. He's awesome and I sure miss him being here.
