My second quilt!  This is a lap quilt for my Dad, I made it in 2005.  He was diagnosed with MS the previous spring, and I wanted to make something nice for him.  The fabrics are mostly bargain-bin from Fabricland, and it's also strip-pieced (like my first quilt).  I like how it came together.  In person it can be difficult to see the overall diamond pattern, but it's very apparent in photographs.

What a pretty quilt! I love how it's graphic and cozy at the same time. I would love to cuddle up with this one. I bet your dad will too!
