Today was a poignant sweet day for me. Two of our children and their husband and girlfriend come to spend the weekend with Mike and I. We had a great weekend and a very special time after brunch this morning. But it did bring up memories of my own dad. He passed away 19+ years ago at the young age of 61. I was the only daughter and very close to my dad. One of the things about my dad was that he wore plaid wool shirts year round. So there was a bunch of them. I had just begun an interest in making quilts, so I asked for all the shirts. So this is my tribute to my dad.
A tied quilt that I made for my brother and his wife for their wedding gift.
A quilt top - I have high hopes of getting my girls to help quilt it!
This is my favorite quilt top that I've made from Dad's shirts. I'm going to hand quilt it, so it has gotten put aside for other time sensitive projects!! If you look - the flower is the same fabric as the shirt that Dad has on in the picture!
