Happy Father's Day Dad

Another one done.
My Dad's Birthday is the 3rd of July, so my husband and I try to spend his Birthday with him each year and celebrate the 4th with him. Well this year it didn't work out with time off, but we are happy that we will be able to go and spend Father's Day with him.
So since I made a nice lap quilt for my Dad's Wife, my Dear Step-Mom, I had to make him one too. :) He has a Schnauzer that is very dear to him and so this is what I came up with.

And in my traditional way I have made a matching label for the back. So Happy Fathers Day Dad.

I'm finishing up the binding on a baby quilt that will go to an expecting Mommy that is a very good friend of my youngest daughter and like a daughter to me also. I won't be here for her shower next weekend so I needed to finish it to give her on Friday. I'll have pictures of it soon too.

Happy Sewing everyone!


  1. Hi, just found your blog...the Schnauzer quilt did it for me! I'd love to know how you did the actual pic of the dog, is it a pattern I can find? You can probably tell I'm new to quilting, but you have inspired me to make something like this for my husband.
    If there's a chance you could share your pattern, I'd sure appreciate it. The quilt is just beautiful, btw.

    Enjoy your Sunday, and stay blessed!

  2. hi, I´m looking for an idea for a gift for my father for christmas, he also have a dog like your father and he´s always with him.
    Here in Brazil I can not get those beatiful fabrics, but the idea is great.
    I love all your works so I´m going to follow your blog

  3. Gailanne and Carla if you can send me an e-mail I can tell you where I got the patterns to do the quilt for my Dad. My e-mail is
