An Awesome Request

I started the day with this text from my son-in-law
(note: he's a die-hard Seattle Sea Hawks fan!):
Son-in-Law: "So one of my friend's Grandma made this for her:
You could do something like that right?!"
My reply: "Absolutely! This is what I do....do I have a request coming my way??"
Son-In-Law: "I never doubted you! HAHAHA You  most definitely do have a request, maybe a surprise for Christmas...to add to our amazing quilt collection."
Me: "I would love to!" (Of course!!)
Son-In-Law: "Yeah!!!! You're the best!!"

Isn't that just one of the most ultimate compliments we can get as a quilter!?!
I had to share with you guys, as his request made my day! I truly adore my son-in-law...so I'm happily off to shop for some Seattle Sea Hawk fabric...that's what I'm up to today.
With smiles,
Val:)

Fun! I'm starting a baby quilt this week that is a request from a friend who is expecting her first grandchild. It's nice to be able to make something that others want but can't make.

You are complimented as a quilter, but this is more than that. You are his Mother In Law! A guy almost always feels a repulsion to his MIL. It's almost required. I always call mine my favorite SIL... it's a joke, he is my only SIL.(I do think of him as a son.) He still thinks badly of me. I made him a really nice quilt with birds and (wild) flying geese all around the outside. (He had just lost his parents - within a year of each other.) So your SIL actually asking you for a quilt, well, in my book, that's major! I'm impressed.
Will you make the same pattern? We know what colors....

Sorry, I forgot the

You have not just had a request, but a request by an in-law (he must love you), and a request by a man! That's like a super-duper compliment!

Jenna Gardner said...

I couldn't agree more! :)

Jenna Gardner said...

If this doesn't say he loves you, I don't know what does! :) xoxo

Christine Feldstein said...

You have now a beautiful new project for somebody who will appreciate it for sure!

Tami C said...

Sounds like you have a really nice son-in-law who appreciates nice things!

Sherry said...

Wow, that had to make your day or perhaps even your week, I know it would mine. I am so excited to see your finished quilt.

Your daughter has chosen wisely! A SIL who appreciates hand made and loved things! Smart guy!!

Daryl @ Patchouli Moon Studio said...

Looking forward to seeing the quilt you make for your SIL. How sweet he wanted a quilt. You already know he'll love and appreciate it since he asked for you to make him a quilt.

That is so great! You're right Val - it is that kind of confidence that a loved one has in you, knowing you can come through for them, that really gives quilters a burst of joy! Go Sea Hawks!

Jasmine said...

What an awesome compliment. To know even before buying the fabric that the quilt would be used and loved.

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

Oh, I know the feeling. My SIL asked if I could make a Chicago Bears quilt for my grandson. I have it done lickly split!

Jackie said...

Yes, requests are wonderful. Just had one last week from my son and I love him for it!

Elise Lea said...

What a wonderful request! How could you say no to that. :-)

Kate said...

Requests from family are always fun. What's even better is when you see them using what you've made them.
