I Think He’d Like It

Today (March 2, 2018) is the first day since my Dad passed away that I have felt like doing ANYTHING. I worked on designing a quilt using pieces of fabric cut from my Dad’s pajamas. (It is the only piece of clothing I have from my Dad.) I thought about how I might make the most of the fabric, because I might need to make more quilts with it.

My Dad absolutely LOVED golf. When he was able, you could find him golfing, talking about golf, or watching golf on TV. Maybe that's why this design came to mind. I liked the shape for the “tees,” and used the pj fabric to make those. I painted the “golf balls” by adding paint to the rim of a bowl to make the circle. Then I dipped a pencil eraser into the paint to make the “dimples” on the ball. After that, I thought what the quilt was missing something and decided it was the hole in the green. So, I added the big black circles onto the green fabric.

Right now, the pieces are just temporarily adhered to the background fabric. I have to finalize the placement of the pieces. I think Dad would have liked it. What do you think?

I think it's a great tribute to a man who loved golf. I liked the representations you used, and think it's a wonderful piece. Your dad would be tickled ... green! =)
