A quilt for Vic

I made this quilt, "Ducks in a Row," for my neighbor and friend, Victor Marquis. Vic is a very talented wood carver, and about a year ago, he agreed to make some folk art style carvings -- for me to give to my parents as a Christmas gift -- in exchange for a quilt. He came through on time, and my parents loved their gift. I was not quite as speedy. He got his quilt this week, more than six months later. Here we are standing on his front porch with the quilt, which features duck decoys like the ones he makes. He surprised me with another gift, two more carved plaques, for me this time! I love them. Thanks, Vic!
