This is the quilt that became my Dad's 80th Birthday present. In a previous posting, I showed the Lone Star I attempted to make. I finally gave up, and decided to use the blue and brown strips in another design. This is the result! My Dad was a fox hunter, and this represents his favorite pastime. At 80, his foxhunting days are long past, but this commemorates a part of him that was important for so many years. I think I am much happier with the end result than I would have been even if the Lone Star had turned out! The blocks are called Roman Blocks, and I machine appliqued the figures in the center panel and then embroidered the borders of each. It is machine pieced and machine quilted.
