Vintage Daddy!

We celebrated Father's Day yesterday with my sister and bil.

I presented my Daddy with this Star Trek quilt.

Block says "To boldly go where no Dad has gone before..."
The blocks were from a 1994 Quiltnet block swap.  

I used 4 cool Star Trek prints for the back.

Quiltnet was one of the original 'Modern' quilting groups.  
We used email list servs to share patterns, faqs and organize swaps.  We were an international quilt group.
Quiltnet World quilt with border blocks sent from all over the world.  Computer block from logo.
I was looking for a photo in one of my old albums and decided to do a 1980's montage of photos of my Daddy.
Dad hand cutting a mantle with a broad axe.
Dad tearing out walls in the basement of our new NC house.
Dad reading parts manuals to fix something.
Captain Glenn going up the creek into Deer Lake in Canada.
Dad fileting fish. 
Dad dancing at a wedding with his girls.
Dad always building something with his girls helping!
Dad and me taking a ride!
Dad cant wait to curl up under his new quilt!  

Happy fathers Day!

keep dreaming...Colleen
BIL and dog-in-law Smitty
Sister with Smitty.

Looks like your dad is a pretty handy guy to have around when a job needs to get done. What a great quilt you presented him on his special day.
