Dad's Quilt

 Yesterday was my father's birthday. He's 83. I took him some cannelloni and a Boston cream pie for lunch. Then we walked the dogs in a park on the ocean. It was sunny and warm and he says it was a perfect day.
Over the years Dad has supported my quilting 'habit' and has made me a cabinet with huge drawers, a quilt ladder to hang my quilts on, a counter height cutting table and a quilting frame.
I think he deserved a quilt, don't you?


  1. What a wonderful tribute to your Dad - I am so glad you blogged this. The quilt is SMASHING and there is something touching about seeing a quilt on it's 'forever' bed!

  2. Thanks Tracy, it warmed my heart too, when he went in and put it straight on his bed.
    He really loves it :)

  3. oh Kim! I love this quilt! The colors are fantastic. You're right, you Dad definitely deserves a quilt! I'm sure he loved it. Thank you so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!
