Quilts for Dad Contest and Happy Father's Day!

17 June 2012

Every week, Michelle over at the Quilting Gallery, holds a themed weekly quilt contest.  I haven't ever entered one before but I decided this was the week to give it a try.  This weeks theme was "Quilts for Dad".  So I entered the quilt I made for my Dad last November.

My Dad is one of the best people I know.  He is a man of great character and integrity.  He is a man of faith and one who would be there for anyone in need.  So for his birthday last year I wanted to make something very special for him.  I wanted it to embody the three things most important to him: his faith, family, and country.  

I pieced an American Flag together for the top of the quilt.  I added in a verse in the middle. And at the bottom of the quilt are pictures of my Dad and Grandpa who were both military men.  

Dad, thanks for being the most amazing Dad a girl could ask for!  Happy Father's Day!

If you want to go check out the other quilts that have entered the contest, you can go here.
And while you are over there you might as well vote for your favorites!  I hope you all enjoy your day today!  Give all those important father's in your life a big hug!
