As long as I was doing upholstery work, Pa thought maybe I could make a cover for the spare tire on the camper, since it sits in the sun all day even though the camper is under a shed... So, I had enough quilted upholstery material left from the truck seat to make the flat circle and more than enough unquilted material to make the rest... I don't think it looks too bad...do you?

Pa asked for me to upholster his 1975 Ford pickup for his birthday this month...so we went to Hancocks before Christmas and he picked out some really pretty woodsy looking material... So the whole time I was finishing up all the Christmas quilting.... I was thinking about how to go about this task... It's been over twenty years since I've done any car upholstery and I wasn't at all sure that I could do an acceptable job of it... Well, it's not perfect and wouldn't be acceptable work from a professional, but, Marvin is thrilled and I'm pleased with how it came out too.... Win...Win!!!
