Dad's quilt.

 Dad's quilt is all finished and its now in the hands of Australia Post, they better look after this very special package. Dad will be 70 on Saturday and I can't wait for him to open his gift from me. Unfortunately dad lives in Queensland and we are in Tasmania  so I couldn't give it to him myself but thats OK.
 I loved making every block in this quilt, choosing fabrics and working out which photo should go where. Its certainly been made with lots of love. I'm happy to say dad is very proud of my quilting and all that I achieve with my designing and being published so I know he will treasure this quilt.
The fabric with the cars is the backing, I'm sure dad had one just like it back in his younger days.


I'm almost ready for christmas. Are you? My inlaws arrive on Wednesday to spend 2 weeks with us so that will be wonderful,  we all get on so well and they are such easy guests.

I hope you have a wonderful week and you beat the christmas rush.
