Happy Father's Day!




After machine quilting for people for 11 years, would you believe that my husband now owns his very first quilt? It's like the shoe maker and his kids that didn't have any shoes! I haven't had a break between customer quilts and donation quilts until now. I got the quilt finished up in time for my husband's birthday in April, but finally finished machine quilting and binding it for him in time for Father's Day! I have yet to make one for myself though. I shall finish my studio and bedroom first. In the mean time I have one to finish for my step son and one for my niece, then just maybe, maybe, I will put one on for myself!

I only wished that I could have made one for my dad. He passed away in '97. Every Father's Day, I think about the memories of celebrating Father's Day when he was alive. Here's to you daddy, I miss you every passing year and love you very much!

Hi Wanda - Haven't visited you in a while...so thought I would drop in. Your hubby's quilt is gorgeous! I have yet to make myself a big quilt and I started one a number of years ago for my DH but it is still a UFO! Maybe in a few years!...

Thanks for adding the gadget to subscribe via email! My fibrofogged old brain says thanks too. Your quilt for your husband is exquisite. Is that a triple Irish chain? The colors are just perfect. So nice to connect with you again, my LB friend.
