    My Dad's Quilt

    My Dad is a very crafty man who did beautiful woodworking and built radio controlled airplanes. So to make a quilt for him he understands the planning and the work that goes into it but, most importantly the love in every stitch.

    His face when he opened it, priceless

    I love the 3-d effect in your quilt. Like a lattice fence. Your dad looks like a treasure!

    How thoughtful. He looks like a great guy and , yes, you are lucky you can share with him. My dad, a woodturner died suddenly Nov. 7. He used my snuggle quilt many times in the recliner.

    You can see that he appreciates every step and stitch that you have put into the lovely quilt for him.

    Very nice. Looks like he loved it. I did my youngest son a Carpenter's Square this year because of his love of carpentry. He also loved his.
