The Manly Man Quilt is Done!!! Woohoo!!

Yay! The Manly Man quilt is done!!! With even a few days left before my son gets home!

It’s been raining today and I wish the sun was shining for some good pictures, but here’s some pictures anyway. It’s a twin-size bedspread so my kids are holding it sideways, trying to keep it off of the wet grass.

Since this is a manly quilt, I decided to quilt it with simple lines. I’ve heard the term ‘organic lines’ and if that means the lines are not necessarily straight, then these lines are definitely organic! : )

Aaahhh… soft yummy minky on the back. (This picture doesn’t show the true color of the brown minky. The one below is a more accurate color.)

I realize that the gift of a homemade bedspread for a 21 year old son may not be the most meaningful thing to him, but I sure had fun making it for him and it was meaningful to me!

I love it! Minky is a great addition to your Manly quilt! Don't think he won't like it, I made a denim quilt for my son when he turned 21 and now, at age 30, he is taking it to his kids soccer games!

It's always great to see a guy quilt, I've just made two as surprise gifts for my upcoming adult sons' graduations and now my husband says I have to make one for him also! Love your colourway and haven't tried sewing with Minky yet myself, will have to look into it :)

Myra said...

Thanks ChrissieD! How neat that your husband is requesting a quilt! The ultimate compliment! : )
