The June 13, 2010 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt newsletter was the Father’s Day issue. The featured quilt is called On the Course by Rhonda Barrow.   It was the perfect quilt to honor our fathers.

This small quilt which measures only 14 x 16 inches is a small replica of where many Father’s Day dreams come true — the golf course. It is a landscape quilt that is created free form in the mind’s eye of the quilter. It was appliqued and quilted by Rhonda.
 
On the Course was part of the Brown Sugar Stitchers’ 2009 Challenge to interpret the theme The Many Facets of African American Quilting.
