For Dad

Been a bit of a gap, but I felt like writing about this quilt I've just made. 
It's called an economy block quilt - no idea why. 
I'm slightly embarrassed to say I made this single-bed quilt entirely out of fabric I already owned. I had to buy a little, just for the back.
I wanted something cheerful for Dad, who's a bit poorly and confined to a single bed in a separate room from Mum, so he doesn't disturb her. I thought the mix of blues and greens would be safe, and I tried really hard not to get too flowery. There are a lot of dots and stripes.
Um, blogger has changed things about quite a bit since I've been away. Hope I can remember how to do all this!

Oh Les, that is superb! What a generous, loving gift for your dad. I bet he's so pleased and proud.

Wow. That's a fantastic mix of colours. I'm very impressed that you had all of that in your stash.It definitely was an 'economy quilt'.
