    My Dad died in 2007. Still don't have the heart to finish the one that I started for him for Fathers Day 2007.

    I'd make an assumption that Warm Wishes, Turning Twenty or a D9 or D4 P are quick and easy and good for dads. :D

    My DH and I have a great way to celebrate Mothers day and Fathers day. It started several years ago when he gave me a weed whacker for Mothers day. I thought I could get mad... or get even so for Fathers day, he got an expensive quilting book. We laughed so hard that we do this every year. Last year I got a pipe wrench....(I'd been needing one of those) and he got a bracelet. This year, I got a two step step lader so that when I wash the truck, I can reach the top. (I never wash a vehicle, he does). He will get an embroidery CD from Dacota Collectables with muscle cars from the 60's and 70's on it. It takes all the stress off and we can just enjoy the day.

    I made my hubby a pillow from a shirt of my daughters that he loved on her when she was little. It was a printed t-shirt that had a silly saying on it "boys are icky"... he loved that shirt on her so I put a cotton fabric back on it and stuffed it - he loves that pillow and it is just a throw pillow for our bed :D

    If he has some favorite shirts that he has outgrown - you could make him a t-shirt quilt from them.

    My Dad has never been much of a sports nut but he does love Alabama Football. I thought I'd make him an Alabama Lap quilt this year.

    You sound like you have a lot of fun together. Your idea certainly works for me!
