    This is a quilt i made for my father. He just loves his garden and is so creative. He collects Royal Doulton Figurines and they have such RICH royal colours, so i decided to do this quilt with them. I have also sewn a special message onto the back of his quilt relating to how i Love him and what special love he has given and shown me. Also professionally joined. I hope you also enjoy looking at this quilt.

    (See I Love My Mom - if you have not seen that one already)
    Thank you to EVERYONE who has already commented to my above quilt - it is so encouraging - i cannot wait to begin another one ♥)

    I love that quilt just as much as the one for your mom. The quilts definitely reflect your love for your parents. That is a wonderful thing.

    What a beautiful colorful tribute to your Dad. I hope you tell him why you chose all the different elements for the quilt that you did. It makes it so much more special to understand all the hidden meanings you put into it. Great quilt.
