House for Sale...quilt.

My husband has been a real estate broker for the past 18 years or so.
I came across a vintage pattern for this wall quilt...and thought it would make a nice addition to his office!
It was fun to use only fabrics that I had on hand...
I even put his name on the "for sale" sign!
