All of the blocks are done.............

Here is the last combination of fabrics that I chose.










All of the blocks are up on the design wall but I can see a couple I have to move.  With 3 blocks of each set of fabrics, it is a challenge to not get 2 of them in the same area or row.  There are 63 blocks, 8" finished block size, 56" x 72".  I wonder if I could stick with the triangles long enough to make the second border a sawtooth one?

Last night Dad had all three of his kids at the apartment for a meal.  He was smiling!

Wonderful when they can smile like that. I am sure it meant a lot to him to have you all together. The blocks are really neat on the wall. Hope you can rearrange them to your liking. Chris

It's a terrific quilt, Wanda.

Love your quilt and how terrific that your dad had such a nice evening with all of you.

Joyce said...

It looks wonderful.
It's amazing how difficult it is to get a whole family together once the kids are grown. Fun when it happens though.

I'd love to see a sawtooth border, but I'll leave that up to the quilt and you. How nice for your Dad to have all of his children together for a meal. It makes me smile just thinking about it.

The quilt is looking wonderful so far. A sawtooth border would be great but what a lot of work - go for it!

Needled Mom said...

I can imagine how thrilled your dad was to have all the kids under his roof.

The blocks look fabulous. It is a really nice size too.

That's getting to be another striking quilt ! Great job.

I really love this quilt now! And it will get even better.

My dad asked for all of us to be in FL for his 85th a few years back. By then, we knew my brother would probably not be there for his 90th, so we all made an effort. And you're right......he smiled all weekend.

What a fabulous quilt. Make me think of dappled sunshine.
How lovely for your dad and all of you -- to see your father smile like that must have given you all a wonderful feeling!

tooth border!

Beautiful - that's all that needs to be said!

Sharon said...

This is gorgeous, I see a few moves too. Yes, you can stick with the pieced border, that would really make this sing. Glad your dad had a good night last night!

Debbie said...

This is fabulous...just love the movement all the colors create. Border or not, I love it.

It has been a treat to watch this one grow. For me it is like 'shadows in the moon light'.

Good to hear your Dad enjoyed having his children around him.
