Modbox Meets Game Night

‘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..

watch this video to discover Juliana’s inspiration for her most recent collection, p.s. she’s absolutely adorable, and has her mother’s beauty..

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..
