    Love your striking colors. It is nice that you have it now that your Dad is "finished with it". Circle of Love

    I really like that. I'm just learning to do flying geese so don't think I'll tackle one that pretty yet.

    what a lovely quilt. no wonder your dad loved it especially made by daughter. The backing brings it all together. You did flying geese like I like to do. the triangle squares and all different. I tried using the flying geese ruler but couldn't get them right so went back to the squares....that way can use more scraps. you did a wonderful job on such a cheery quilt.

    Thank you for the kind comments about Dad's quilt. I'm glad it has my QB friends seal of approval :-P Thanks too for the sweet and thoughtful comments about Dad, it's much appreciated.

    I originally planned to make the quilt in plaids & stripes thinking it would be more masculine looking. But he wanted bright colors and I love working with brights so it worked for me. :-P

    Toomanycats - My feelings exactly on being able to use more scraps :-P

    Batiks not usually my thing but love it and especially the backing.
    Just lost my Dad in July and had one of those really missing him moments this am. So nice you know that he loved it. Having had wonderful parents is truly one of life's greatest blessings.

    I just love the colours - so bright and cheerful

    MerryQuilter - I'm sorry for the loss of your Dad. It will be 4 years on the 22nd of this month since he passed and I still have 'those moments' every so often. I remember going to the grocery store about a month after Dad passed and I wasn't thinking about him at the moment. I walked by men's razors and rememberd him & I shopping together for them & had all I could do to compose myself in the grocery store. A close friend's Mom called after he passed. She is 85 and her parents passed when she was 35. She said she still sheds a tear every once in a while. You're right we were blessed to have them.

    Thank you for your kind words about the backing even though batiks aren't your thing.

    rebeljane & pocoellie - Thank you for the compliments on the quilt. Am glad you like it :)
