‘man’ quilts.. am i the only one who has a hard time picking fabrics and patterns for a masculine quilt…? i need to whip together a quilt for my son-in-laws birthday this week. he likes old worn in t-shirts, pandas and the color black and grey.. honestly, that doesn’t give me much to work with..
i narrowed down my patterns to two quilts from issue 9 of Quilt It Today , and ended up choosing “Game Night”, a fun quilt with big bold arrows, and chose six prints from Juliana Horner’s Modbox Collection..
well, who said, you can’t start a quilt at 10pm… haha
progress report. 3-25-14
i’m loving these prints..
note to self, don’t start cutting at 10pm, when i’m tired, i wasn’t paying attention, my ruler slid and i cut a whole strip wrong.. and of course i had the minimum amount of fabric, so i’ll be making a trip back to the fabric store..
[keep reading to see the finished quilt...]

i had a busy day yesterday, so there wasn’t much progress… but today, i finished the quilt front! i made a few changes, like going with a solid instead of a print for the arrow, and side sashing. i wanted to keep it simple and clean. my son-in-laws going to get a kick out me making a quilt using an arrow print as well as arrows in the overall design.
quilt complete! 3-28-14.
it’s a glooming california day, so the photos are a bit grainy..
in my efforts to keep this quilt simple and minimal, i simply stitched in the ditch, i’m really happy with this quilt and i think he’ll love it!
i even snuck his favorite animal into the label..
