The surprise quilt has gone off to be sandwiched and bound. I pinned the big strips together perfectly and got fantastic matched corners! Not only that, but I finished it in record time. I think the quilt top was done in a week. Setting cheetah-esque speed records for sewing! I have decided to include a photo since I’m not really sure the intended recipient will even see this post. The joke will be on me if that happens! 😉
If you can zoom (not sure if that’s possible), you’ll notice the theme is golf. Of course, I didn’t save my selvedges, so I have no clue about the name or manufacturer of the fabric. I love the cartoon golfer and his exploits…it reminds me of my dad and another favorite movie of mine, Caddyshack.
Caddyshack was the first videotape we owned back in 1985, when VCR’s cost thousands and the videotape choices were either Betamax or VHS. It was the only tape we had for ages and I watched it hundreds, nay, thousands of times. Fortunately, my naive nine-year old noggin couldn’t comprehend most of the innuendos or adult themes. Lacey Underall? Spalding? Kentucky Bluegrass crossed with California Sensemillia? Huh? Only now as an adult do I appreciate it fully. How can you go wrong with a Kenny Loggins soundtrack (I’m alright, nobody worry ’bout me!); a dancing gopher; and a stellar cast featuring Chevy Chase, Ted Knight, Rodney Dangerfield and Bill Murray? Icing on the cake…the movie is full of memorable quotes.
Father’s Day Gift Ideas? Yeah, I’ll make it easy…Caddyshack and a Golf Quilt.
