20 - Dad's Quilt

I was so surprised last summer when Dad softly mentioned, "Ya know, I'd sort of like to have a quilt, ya know."  My head spun around and I asked Dad if I'd heard him correctly.  He smiled that cute little side-grin of his and confirmed, "Yeah, I would like to have one of your quilts on my bed someday."  Well!  Say no more!!!  Now let's hope I can get it quilted and hand-bound by Christmas!  :

Update:  Christmas Eve!  Whew!  I made it!!!
Dad really loves his quilt.  He slept under it on Christmas Eve (my goal) and said it kept him really warm.  So warm, in fact, that he "slept in" until 7:00 oclock!  Yeah :)

  1. I am constanly amazed by the progress this relationship has taken. How great is it that Wayne VERBALIZED his desire!! I am excited about this quilt. If you miss Christmas deadline you can always fall back on his birthday, Jan. 7th. How do I remember that? Well, it is mine too. Ha, that is the only way I would be able to remember it! I am proud of you for getting on this important one.
