Amy of Sew Incredibly Crazy is our head cheerleader for the event.
...and this one is for my guy! His birthday is this month and in February we will be celebrating our first 25 years as Mr. and Mrs. (Love it!!) So I'd say it's about time I made him his own quilt for the ol' "Man Cave" don't ya think!? A big thank you Amy and Madame Samm for hanging a carrot in front of me!!
I started with a layer cake of soft, cozy flannels.
Sewed them together in rows of 6x7.
Used my Twister template to make the easiest pinwheels ever and bordered it with a blue plaid flannel.(If ya like the look of the pinwheels, the directions are included with the template and they are very, very easy to follow. There is even a Lil' twister you can use with charm packs!)
Here it is finished and waiting to be quilted.
|The entire perimeter of the quilt is bordered with the blue plaid. (The top is draped over the fence.)|
Luckily, I have a long weekend off and ten more days until his birthday! I think I can easily have it done for his big "five-O" celebration! I hope. (I'm thinking of just quilting it with a fun pantograph??) I have a green flannel for the back and a dark blue flannel for the binding. I've never made a flannel quilt before but one thing I can tell ya is, it is the coziest quilt I have ever made and it's not even finished yet!! I think I'll be making myself one very soon as it's that cozy!! I LOVE IT!
I'll be sure to share when it's quilted and at home in the "man cave". Thanks for stopping by and for even more awesome inspiration, be sure to check out all the other participants of "For The Boys":
