All About the Trout By: judee, Connecticut, USA
This is a panel of fish that my husband loves to pursue in the summer. I added a border in a fish novelty print and a fleece backing. I quilted the whole thing. I did some trapunto around his favorite fish. He plans to use this on top of his sleeping bag when he goes camping and fishing.

Bliss By: Lee, Alberta, Canada
I made this quilt for my dad. He has been a boat lover forever. He came to babysit my kids while hubby & I went on vacation Feb ’09. I taught my self paper piecing & used my own layout. Blocks on the bottom are the nautical flags for BLISS II, the name of his current boat he lives on.

Memorial Quilt for Chris By: Debi R., Nevada, USA
My son’s father passed in 2007 and I just finished his memorial quilt using strips of fabric from his dad’s shirts. I used a variety of quilt patterns including rail fence, 4-patch, and windows. I added lots of clouds as his dad is now in heaven. His dad loved the color blue. My son loves it!

Mika’s Hibiscus By: Sharon Scott, California, USA
My husband loves to photograph flowers. While in Kailua Kona, I was flower pounding and pounded this huge hibiscus while my hubby was golfing. The next day he wanted to go downtown to photo the hibiscus he had seen. I held up the fabric…and he hasnt let me forget it. I hope this makes up for it

Quilt Monster By: Patty Ashworth, Tennessee, USA
One block of the monsters was made and was up on my wall for 1 1/2 years… then the other blocks were being made and the monster just slipped into the middle! He just fit. He was supposed to be in a quilt for a show that would say, don’t touch the quilts, that’s my job!

The Generals By: Jan Stone, Missouri, USA
I made this quilt for my hubby, who is a Civil War buff. The quilt features both Union and Confederate Generals. Each entering this grueling war for many individual reasons. Just as today, a military father gives his children, by his example a great gift–to see a man of honor do his duty.

The Man Quilt aka Mid-life crisis By: Christi Steiner, Oklahoma, USA
A few of dad’s favorite things…Cigars, Three Stooges, hot peppers, casinos. It all started with beer (he collects steins) and pretzels but I just kept finding more fabrics of things he liked or started to like when he turned the big 5-0! Made for my husband a wonderful father to our two boys.

Ties to Dad By: Lisa Bryson, North Carolina, USA
This for a Friend who lost his father earlier this year. I used the actual tie for the fans and overlapped them using a blanket stitch. The center fence rail I took the ties apart to get an even piece. I used Rock Candy for alittle bit of a shine around the ties & M’liss fabric elsewhere.
