The Man Quilt

Every once in a while I enter a quilt in an online contest.  Sometimes I blog about it sometimes I don't.  This was the first quilt I made after getting my Longarm.  And the one I've entered in the contest that you can find here.  Anyone can vote, and there's many beautiful quilted eye candies.  Even if you don't vote you can leave a message for a chance to win a gift certificate from the Fatquartershop.
This quilt I call "The Man Quilt" because Ross was tired of all my brightly colored quilts and asked if I had any fabric that wasn't bright.  Well if you know me, I like color.  But there are a few browns and muted fabrics hiding in the stash.  So here's the Man Quilt for the MAN in my life.  Of course I had to take a picture with some girly flowers...LOL
It was made from the scraps left over from this quilt....Given to my BFF when she had her hysterectomy.  I call it "The Beauty in Chaos"  
 And other made from the same scraps.  I took a 2.5 strip from every fabric I had at the time and made these super scrappy quilts.  And the one below was made for my BFF's  mother in law when she went in a nursing home.  She wanted something to make her room seem homey and cozy.  No pattern, just threw it together in 11 days start to finish, delivered on the 12th day!  The pinwheels in the sashing were from the quilt above when I cut off the corners of the snowball block.  And if your wondering.... there's still scraps left from these 3 quilts, enough to make another lap quilt.  
Until next time "Quilt out of your Comfort Zone!"

  1. Love the process behind scrap quilts. Such a trip down memory lane.
