Dad's Quilt

Dad had requested that we didn't buy presents for his birthday this year but that wasn't something I was so comfortable with - 80 is a very significant birthday after all!! So, using material from my stash, I decided to make him a lap quilt. During winter Dad often likes to have a rug over his knees when he's watching TV and I thought a quilt would be something he could use and also keep for years to come. While making the quilt I wasn't sure that the colours were going to come together and, as a result, wasn't sure what the end result would be like. However, I'm glad to say, it did all come together and I was quite happy with the end result. I hope you get lots of use out of it Dad and that it'll help keep you warm :)

  1. No wonder you haven't had time to blog! What a beautiful quilt and a wonderful gift.

  2. Your colours blend beautifully with the furnishing and Dad has the quilt right beside him on his chair. I love the quilts you make and Dad will treasure his. xxx
