    How lovely! So special that your Dad understands and appreciates what goes into crafting a quilt.

    Great colors for your dad and a nice masculine pattern. Did you notice his Christmas sweater has the same kind of bar theme?!? I made one for my Dad last year and it was one of the first things he took when evacuating from Sandy. I'm sure he appreciates the love in every stitch as much as mine does!

    It is so wonderful to see the recipient in full appreciation of the cost, time and effort put into making the quilt. This is clearly shown on Dad's face and in his smile. A picture is worth a thousand words!! Very nice quilt, love the colors and apparently so does Dad!!!

    Your dad certainly looks pleased with his lovely quilt. I like the way you played with shadows of monochromatic colour. It really is effective. Well done!

    Great quilt and your dad looks so happy with it.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.
