Words for Pop Pop

9 Comments

Hey Guys!

Sunday is Father’s Day and today I will be putting a special present in the mail.  I had this great idea to make a quilt for my Grandfather.  I ask members of my family to give me a word that described my Pop Pop to them.  I then took some of those words and embroidered them onto the back of the quilt.   With some help from my Mom, I was able to put all my words for Pop Pop in good use.  This project was fun to do and filled my TV time with purpose. Below are more pictures enjoy!

I used Wonder Under to attached the embroidery to the back of the quilt.  Then I used a zig zag stitch out a wonky star that imitates the large star on the front of the quilt.  IMG_0822

Here is the quilt front quilted and binded.  I love the green binding!

I am just a girl trying to be crafty. Well really a woman but my thoughts are girly. I am embarking on a journey. I hope to complete all of my goals, share and learn from others.

  1. I love giant block quilts. Great colours and I love the label. I’m sure your grandfather will love it! Thanks for linking up to TGIFF!

  2. Very sweet! What a nice gift!

    I love the big block quilts too – I’ve got one top that I finished about five or six years ago but have never gotten around to finishing (even the back is pieced together, it just needs to be quilted!). As with so many of my things… one of these days!

  3. Very nicely done, I’m sure the quilt will be cherished.

  4. what a great quilt and a lovely tribute !

  5. I have GOT to make me one of these giant star quilts. Yours is particularly lovely and masculine all at the same time. I’m sure Pop Pop will adore it.
