So this quilt is to make up for that somewhat...I hope.
I may be actually making up for this for some time as he had some major surprises for me on my 40th.
And we still need to get away without the kids.
Emily sent me the inspiration link for this quilt--a large chevron pattern. Cuts quickly and sews up quickly which is what I needed since I had to quickly assemble the top, send it to the quilter in order to get it back to me to be bound and all in time for Father's Day.
I added the green and lighter brown to pick up more of the color within the camoflauge.
I didn't get a chance to wash it before giving it to him, but I have since then and it has softened up nicely.
That Mossy Oak Break-Up fabric was a little stiff. Like denim or lightweight canvas.
On the back I just pieced a couple strips.
They look "off" in this pic but the wind was blowing some.
- Cut 10" squares and then cut into HST.
- Sewed 8 blocks across and 9 blocks down.
- No border
- Machine bound with the dark print from the front.
- Machine quilted by Lynn Peterson in meandering pattern. She actually alternated the meander between zigzags so that you can subtly see the zigzag stripes on the back.
