Yellow Card Trick

by Mark E
(Minneapolis, Mn)


My daughter picked out the yellow fabric for this quilt. She wanted to make it but she is busy at college so her dear old dad took on the project.

This was my first attempt with all the angles. It really helps having a rotary cutter.

When I made my first quilts in high school everything was cut using scissors.

The quilting was done by someone I found on eBay. This was the second quilt she quilted for me. I just send her the top, she provides the batting and backing. I made up the binding and finished the quilt off and added my daughters name and the year I made the quilt.

I'm working on a churn dash pattern now, hopefully I can get it done before spring.

Dad comes Through!

What a great story! I bet your daughter really enjoys showing off this treasure to her friends.

I doubt many people can hold up a quilt and give credit to their father. I can't imagine my Dad even considering such a project.

Thanks for sharing!
