Just for you, Honey!

I made this quilt for my husband's birthday in 2000. He had waited years for his very own quilt so I decided his would be the first of the new millienum, and it was!! I sewed on this only when he was not around, and did the majority of it on Tuesday nights during Sewing and Craft night at church and finished it up at our yearly quilt camp the wknd of his birthday. It is foundation pieced and very heavy!!! There are buttons sewn in the center of each block as well on on the corner of each block.

This was a real stretch for me with all those bland colors rather than the soft pinks, greens, lavendars and blues I love so much. It is huge (took 2 people to hold it up for this pic), it took FOREVER to do, but I really like it.

I bet he loves it. It's a wonderfully graphic quilt and perfect for a man.

Cool quilt! I don't think I have seen a pic of it till now, Pam. This is probably one that gets fought over for coverup while watching TV in the evenings?

Hi Pam! I love those crooked logs :) I'd say muted, not bland! I did a quilt last year with button "ties" and liked the effect.

I like the effect of the buttons, and the colours are great for a fella. VERY nice quilt. My DH likes wonky-type blocks too :-)
