The Dad Quilt & one other (more testing pix size)
So here's the Dad Quilt (done QAYG),
This Spring I finished a quilt originally made for my Dad who'd been terminally ill. He died when it was abt 1/2 done. I put it aside for abt a year, finished it last Spring btwn the anniversary of his death (Memorial Day Wknd) & Father's Day. I intend to give it to my StepMom (lives in FLA, I'm in NYC). I'll have to wait for less tight a budget to ship it, but I can feel mixed feelings already abt parting w/ it. Yet I've always intended her to have it in the end as a touchstone to him (if she cared to). While I'm ambivalent, I believe she'll really like it. We'd had a coffee theme in the Family, both before her & after & the Quilt had novelty fabrics themed of coffee: coffee beans, other stylized coffee beans, old percolators & mill grinders, tea cups & colored mugs motifs, etc. I think my Dad would have smiled.
