What are you most proud of? Like my dad, this quilt is pretty straight forward, no frills. I think he'll like it. While the piecing is pretty simple and minimal, the details are in the quilting. I did a diamond shape in the center, filled it with small stippling. The blue lettering has a larger "zippling" which is like stippling, but all straight lines and angles. I highlighted the letter H with the zippling in gold thread, and I also echoed the diamond so it looked like it was "moving out". My camera is crappy, so it may not have captured the full effect, but I think it looks good. That's it! I'm done with Christmas gift quilts [for now].

Thanks darns. This idea came to me fairly easily but working out a simple design turned out a bit harder than you would think! I am pleased with the end result. Jose Luis BETTER like it. :-) :-) :-)

So glad that your Dad didn't miss out Quilt Dude - you are becoming the master of quilting in the site - keep up the great work.

I felt Jose Luis (dad) might be feeling a bit left out, so I had to make something for the head of our household, just for him. As simple as the design is, it took a LOT of planning to get it looking just so. Thanks for the kind words, Beth!
