    hahah, cinnya, he's 6ft. 6in. tall. Yup his head does about touch the ceiling, he has to bend down to go through most doorways! I sure did supersize it for him.

    That's a wonderful gift. Tall people have a hard time finding something to fit appropriately - including blankets and quilts. He must be very proud of you!

    Yes! It's white bowling Pins w/ red stripe and blue and black bowling balls in the background. That's why I did blue and black 4 patches. When I asked him what kind of a quilt he wanted all he would say is "I'd like it to cover me up and I like blue!" hahaha that made it easy

    Nice quilt. My dad hated having his picture taken, too. My DH got quite a few because he had a telephoto lens and dad didn't know his picture was being taken. Now that he is gone my siblings are so glad we have those.

    Wow, he is tall. He will really appreciate this as most quilts were probably too short. Happy birthday to your Dad, or Happy belated birthday!
