I made this quilt for my dad.  I’ve been quilting for over 8 years and have never made my parents anything!  (Don’t worry Mom, yours will come!)

Me and dad in Thailand this past March at the elephant park.

When my dad helped me get to Utah this fall to attend the Sewing Summit, I knew it was time for a big thank you.

This quilt is using the Modern Crosses pattern from Susan Beal’s Modern Log Cabin Quilting.  I didn’t think white was the right color for my dad (what bachelor washes quilts as often as they should? :) so I went with Kona cotton in navy.  I dug through my blue, green, brown, and yellow scraps for the crosses and binding.

It’s backed with a plaid from Denyse Schmidt’s Picnic and Fairground, some Katie Jump Rope bandana in brown, an unknown green vine print, and more Kona navy.  He seems happy with it and I hope he gets many years of warmth from it.  I love you, Dad!

(Thanks Greg for helping with the pictures!)
