    Finally, I have a picture of something "I" made! Pictured below is the lap quilt that I made for my Dad. It was supposed to be for his birthday in March but it wasn't done then. So, now it is a Father's Day quilt. YEA :lol: It was such fun to put together although I have to confess it was machine quilted by a friend. He was very pleased even if it was in the 90s outside.

    Just look at the happy smile on your Dad's face. You did a great job and so did your friend with the quilting. It looks like a man's quilt too.

    That is a great "guy quilt". I can tell your Dad loved it-he is beaming with pride!!! Your colors are great and I love the pattern. Thanks for sharing it with us-and for putting your Dad in the pic too.

    I love the smile on your Dad's face! I gotta say it looks a teensy bit like he's got a good hold on it and will not let anyone take it away!

    Quilt gifts are priceless. You can't calculate the amount of time and love that goes into something like this, nor can you gauge the happiness it brings others. Good job :!: :thumbup:

    Your quilt is wonderful, and certainly the greatest gift is his smile for you!
