A Gift from Dad

Robyn’s dad was a quilter.  He passed away awhile back and left several unfinished quilts, quilt tops, fabric, etc.  This is the quilt he had intended for his daughter, Robyn.  I was honored to get to quilt it for her… and him.  This is part of a legacy for both Robyn and her dad, and I got to be a part of completing this legacy circle.  I have a feeling this will be handed down through the generations.  <tears welling up>


Can you tell it’s a King sized quilt?  It’s so big it didn’t even fit onto my design wall without hanging off.  🙂

She simply wanted an allover design with swirls (I do love quilting swirls!) and hearts as she was planning on putting it on her bed.


Yes, her husband sleeps there, too.  😉 … the reason for the hearts.   I wish now that I had placed this in a more inconspicuous place on her quilt.


Of course, after I was nearly done, I found a good spot for another surprise.

Can you tell what it says?  “A moment in time, forever in my heart.”  To me it’s “fitting” in more ways than one.
