You did a great job! He should appreciate all the love you put into this beautiful quilt! Keep smiling and never stop doing what you love! :)

My DH father was a mean man and my DH has very few if any good memories of him. When he died the emotion my DH felt most strongly was relief and then that was followed by guilt for feeling relief. No grief. He had been too mean to grieve over. Some parents are like that. Just realize that you shouldn't feel guilty.

I think people who don't don't craft have no idea what goes into a project. I'm sorry Dad didn't realize how much love went into his gift. It really is a great wall hanging and there's nothing that says patriotic like red, white and blue.

As a parent, I am very thankful for anything my children give me. Moreso, if it is handmade. We don't all have the same taste. But for a father to be like that to his daughter is ridiculous. Be happy knowing you made a great gift. His loss!!!

My Dad has a quilt I gave him, but I have no idea where he put it. He forgets to be nice to his children.

I'm so sorry your father has that attitude. It looks PLENTY patriotic to me. Good job on the piecing and quilting. AND the binding.

My father's comment to me, when I gave him a lap quilt, was "Why do you waste your time doing crap like that?"

Being a Dad, there is nothing my daughter could give me that I wouldn't show the appropriate gratitude and appreciation for. Your father's response is quite tone-deaf.
