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!)
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!
