Today is the unveiling of the last of the three gift quilts. (And probably the last quilt for 2021!) It is of course, going to this guy:
My Dad, pictured here with a wee little Jem all those years ago (around 4 years ago, I think). And after seeing that picture, I think you’ll agree this quilt is pretty darn appropriate.
I wasn’t planning on making my Dad a quilt for Christmas this year. I made his rag quilt last year (which he uses all the time), but when I saw the Wiggle Butts panel, I knew he had to have another quilt.
I was able to get some fun coordinating prints, and plot out a designed that all worked together.
Like the outhouse quilt, this one is just so much fun!
For the back, I got some fun flannel that matched quite nicely (and was on sale)
The only thing that could have made that back better is if those dogs were black labs. But still, I’m not going to be too picky, it’s a pretty perfect quilt!

I’d lost count that you’ve made three plus some baby quilts as well lately. Amazing!! How lucky to be on your gift list this year.
The lap quilt turned out great! I would love to see your dad’s expression when he opens his gift. A priceless moment.
Oh, perfect! He will treasure this quilt!
Perfect aligning of the planets brought this about!
It’s perfect. Reminds me so much of our golden lab Chloe. She would sit just like this. Your Dad is going to absolutely love it. Fate made you find that panel because it was obviously destined for him.
Not sure what your Dad was eating, but Miss Wigglebutt sure would like some. LOL That quilt is going to be PERFECT!
Excellent! Your Dad will love it.
Tailor-made for him!
That is such a wonderful quilt for your Dad! You did an excellent job with designing blocks and borders to go with the panels. Flannel fabric just makes the quilt even cozier. You should feel very proud of all the Christmas gifts you have completed!
