The Lost Quilt

A couple years ago, I decided to make a flannel lap quilt for my dad for Christmas. I worked on it at a quilt retreat. I couldn't get it long armed before Christmas, so I gave it to my dad and then took it back. I didn't get the binding on right away. One day Jim took it over to the store room, not knowing that I was working on it. Well, I am embarrassed to say, but it got lost. This spring, Jim was cleaning out the storage unit and he found my quilt! I started to work on it and want to give it to dad by Father's Day.

I found my photos from the retreat, so you can see the work in progress!

I finished sewing on the binding last night. I still need to make a label.

This shows the machine quilting up close. It's so soft and it's the colors that my dad loves and has in his living room.

The finished quilt all folded up. I know he will like it and be happy to see it again! It will feel nice and warm this fall.
