    Right before we went on vacation, I finished the quilt for my Dad! Well, I actually finished it on the airplane :oops: !

    He graduated from the Naval Academy and my parents attend tons of Navy football games through the season, so I made him this quilt in the Navy colors with appliqued USNA in the center - with a warm flannel backing!

    He was surprised and speechless when I gave it to him at the beach, which is rare for him, especially after the traditional "first-night-on-the-beach" beers he had drank!!

    Now, my projects include the URR quilt (saved as PDF) that I designed using a EQ5 template and the International Round Robin center that I am fabric shopping for in about 20 minutes!

    Off to shop!

    PDF file - I accidently deleted the sketchbook copy of the quilt with all the colors, so here is the one with MOST of the colors, but not all!

    Love your father's quilt!!

    Moonpi - that is certainly a different version of the URR's on here. I like both. Sailboat is not that in your version.

    Thanks everyone for your kind words!! It is as much fun to see people's reactions to their quilt gifts as it is to make them - well, ALMOST as much fun!!

    There are a lot of navy families on the Board!

    FYI - the pattern can be found here (which includes the templates for the letters): http://www.villagequiltshoppe.com/de...TOKEN=45011345

    And the letters can be found free at this link as a PDF file, if you want to use your own pattern: http://www.quiltmaker.com/webextras/lettersmain/

    The original pattern was in the September/October 2001 issue (#81) of Quiltmaker magazine if anyone holds onto their magazines that long!!

    happy quilting!!! :D
