My dad was a really big part of my life. He died in my early 20's, and as an adult, I often think of him and wonder what he would think of what I'm doing. When it comes to my quilting, I know he'd be super proud of me for finding something I enjoy so much. And he would be super proud of this quilt, I know it would make him smile. My dad worked two jobs for most of my childhood and both involved a lot of time on the phone. One job was in sales and the other in the telephone survey industry. My dad was the kind of guy who liked to use his hands...all the time. If you went into his office, more often than not, if was on the phone, he'd have a pen in hand with a notepad, and would be doodling a pattern similar to this quilt. I've found myself doing the same thing in the last year or so, and that was my inspiration for this quilt.
