  2. What a perfect quilt for H2H, QOV and a retirement all in one! I love that you left your humility patch in there and the look on that happy man’s face…….priceless. Kudos Roseanne. I think you got him right where it counts. ❤️

    What a wonderful gift, Roseanne! I’m sure it will be loved! Don’t you love when the recipient is so touched that they want to show it off! I understand how you will miss him! We have 8 retirees at my school this year which is a lot for a small school. Next year will feel very different!

    Beautiful quilt! And it’s obvious he’s in LOVE with it! Such a nice tribute!
    Thank you for linking up to TGIFF!

  11. That is just awesome! I’m sure he will remember you every time he looks at this beautiful gift!! I just love feeling all that squishy awesomeness!!

  12. Your thoughtfulness in including the giftee’s vet status in his retirement as a school principle and as your colleague is a home run!
    BTW: it looks like a super squishy quilty quilt!

  13. That’s a beautiful quilt, Roseanne! I knew your recipient would be really touched. And that partial star at the bottom with one point going the wrong way? Getting to retirement after a long career is like that – sometimes there’s a wrong turn, but you always get there in the end!

    There is nothing better than to see how much the recipient enjoys the quilt, and the smile on his face says it all. Well done! What a kind and thoughtful gift.

  16. Karla says:

    Aww…I love the story and the quilt is beautiful! What a great retirement gift — You and Sue are so generous!

  17. I love the photo of the vet with his quilt, Roseanne! Wonderful! 🙂

  18. The quilt is gorgeous but I really love the story and the well wishes sewn into that piece!! It’s wonderful!

  19. I love this – the quilt turned out so well and I can see he really appreciated it. So a vets quilt for someone really special. Well done you.

    Oh, how sweet! That is just wonderful that you were able to gift him his own quilt.
