Thanks, everyone.  You are very sweet.

All I can say is WOW! And the fact that you kept that a surprise is amazing!! Your label made me tear up, so sweet! Was your hubby blown away?
It was near impossible to keep a surprise with a three year old with me 24/7 and a six year old.  They would ask me what it was and I would be evasive.  Oh, just some quilt squares.--who's it for--oh, we'll see.  They assumed it was for someone's baby.  So until I needed to put large pieces together, it wasn't too hard. . . 
It was the nearby VBS that was gift from God that allowed me to finish it and keep it a secret.

My hubby loved it and appreciated the gift--but I don't think he really understood the labor of love that a quilt is. (esp a quilt of that size)  He's far from crafty. ;^)  But he realized how important it was for me to give it to him and therefore *I think* treasures it.  Sometimes gifts are important to the giver. . . It meant a lot to make it for him--and for us.

I too, was moved by your quilt.  About your husband being moved by it...well, back when my husband and I first started dating, I didn't have any money to buy him a Christmas gift.  So I decided to crochet him a blanket.  He's a big guy, and the blanket was huge.  I wondered if he would appreciate it as well.  Fast forward 21 years later-if that blanket doesn't go on our bed at the first sign of cold weather, he is hounding me about it!  Grin  So yes, I think your hubby does appreciate it.  Men just show it in weird, practical ways.

This is so beautiful!

You're an amazing quilter to take on such an enormous project for your husband. I can only dream of being that dedicated (to quilting).
