For the Hubs

I made quilt. I know?! Surprise, right. This one is for the hubs, he deserved one. Considering that he has had my back on this quilting gig since day one.


He actually bought the machine - the one that makes the quilts - as a present pour moi. So really, he is the starter of the madness. And trust - it is such fabric madness over here.


So, I sewed up this 'crazy fabric' quilt as a way of saying thanks - thanks, honey, for helping me to find my creative self. I love this hobby.




This quilt now resides on our couch - I may or may not have had a nap under it the other day. No pictures were taken, so really no one has any proof that I was snoozing instead of doing chores.


Happy weekend all. This one is much needed around here! It is spring break starting Monday - so I look forward to some extra time spent with my little.

  4. Fabric madness brings such joy :-) what a lovely hubs to be so kind as to invite the madness is. It's a great quilt. I really like the brown crosses - they give such an impression of warmth.

  8. It is a beautiful quilt Lisa. The colors and the design are perfect for a guy. We are very lucky to have such supportive husbands that put up and encourage our fabric buying, hold our quilts up to photograph and always say our creations are beautiful.
    I'm sure your husband is thrilled with his new quilt it is gorgeous.
