My husband is my greatest supporter. Being a quilter brings a lot of warmth into peoples lives but also a lot of mess, crazy and late nights.
He has made the comment more than once that the quilts I make tend to have a lot of flowers on them. So I decided to make a man themed quilt.
I used the Micheal Miller line called which resembles herringbone, so very masculine. I needed more, so i decided a trip to the 50% off thrift store day and bought a variety of co-ordinating mens shirts.
Since I love to quilt so much I designed the quilt with open spaces for quilting. I wanted to showcase the fabric and emphasize the manly textures.
It was a bit of a challenge for me to quilt only men style free motion quilting motifs. Good to get out of my box and stretch.
I was really happy with the results. Love the double batting too.
