A Quilt For My Dad


I have wanted to make my dad a quilt for a while now. I had a large amount of Oh Deer and I chose to make simple wonky blocks. Wonky is my favorite! 

For the back I used a simple Robert Kaufman flannel in yellow. 


The quilt measures approximately 58 inches wide by 72 inches long. I wanted to make sure it was long enough I cover him well. He gets cold easily now a days. 


For the binding I used a dot print from the same line. As always I used a zig zag stitch for the binding. Even though I've been told that's not propper I like the way it looks and holds up. 


Thanks for stopping in!!
