AMC Quilt
« on: July 05, 2012, 08:12:21 PM »
Hey All:

My wife, the best car-guy wife I could ever hope for, just finished up an AMC quilt.  She took up quilting a while back with the neighborhood ladies (she needed a hobby), and made me a car-guy AMC quilt from a bunch of Route 66-themed fabrics.   I bet she could sell these if they weren’t so much of a pain to make.

I no longer have an AMC Eagle, but I am still a fan.

After our fiasco with the Toyota Corolla I got for my wife I believe I am done with Japanese vehicles.

Dude you are preaching to a choir member that is close to becoming an AMC Minister if you know what I mean.

Very nice! You gonna hang it up on display out in the shop er use it to keep warm? Rarely gets cold enough for a quilt around here, but when it does, nothing's better.

Nah; she made me a little version out of leftover pieces to hang up in the shop.

You must not be taking any summer classes??
