My Dad's quilt

My Dad is pretty awesome, he is always there when you need him.  He is a great Dad, a fantastic Grandad and a wonderful friend.

Every time I give my Mum, my son, my husband, one of my sisters, or my nephew, a friend or a neighbour (you get the idea) a quilt, he asks with a smile, "Where's my quilt?" and I always reply "Oh yeah, I'm still making that".  I didn't ever think he would want a quilt, but the last time he said it I realised he might be serious..... so here it is... almost finished.  I will baste and quilt it before the Easter break is over!

This is my version of Jaybird Quilts 'Unwind'.  

hmmmm... I might have to piece this back a little more, I'm not sure it is wide enough.... my tape measure obviously wasn't working when I measured it.... :)


  1. It's Fabulous & I'm sure your Dad will be Thrilled that he Finally has his own...
    well done

  2. WOW, stunning quilt! Well done!

  3. This is such an awesome Man quilt mate!
