Every Monday, Heidi puts on making something new from something old and tells the bloggers to also do it. This is Heidi quilting but not from something old.

This is the semi that Eric drives. Heidi sent him an email of a trucker quilting when he is sitting at truck stops. Now, this guy has nothing on Eric. Way before this email, ---------
Eric wanted Heidi to make him a quilt. She keeps putting him off, so guess what, he made his own. I had civil war fabric wool scraps upstairs so I brought them down and here is what he made in only ten hours and with lots of M & M's.

This is the result, and he has it in his truck keeping him warm. Great job Eric.
Heidi says that all quilts need a label before they are finished. This is Eric's. Now you see why they both had to be on this post.

Yes and now you have less of those scraps left over in the attic. Is there more for him to make another quilt? Like for his sissy? :-)

Love and hugs,

Wow, a big compliment for Eric, I think he did a great job!!! The quilt looks really comfy and cosy too. I love it!
I did expect an enormous shout of joy from Heidi, by the way ... is she jealous or what ;)
Thanks for sharing, lovely poest, Nancy!

Hugs, Carolien

Wow, I can't even make a quilt!
He did a great job and should be very proud of himself!

Yeah for Eric!! I see now that talent runs in your family! Heidi had better watch out or Eric will catch up with her!

How did he learn to do that! Amazing skills! And it seems to be a warm and coozy quilt for al long ride in his truck.
And so great that this was made from your stash.
