the 'man-friend' quilt finished! pic!

teresa_nc7June 7, 2011

So I finished the Flying Home from Bali Bali quilt last night, but still need to make a label. This is the design I made for my sister to give her man-friend for his birthday later this month. I am pleased with the way it turned out, but the quilt gremlins were messin' me up during the construction. Somehow the two sets of blocks, geese and 8-patch, had trouble being the same size - as they were supposed to be. I put some geese on the back also. But I forgot to take a pic of the back.

This is another nickel quilt using 5-inch squares of fabric from the first Nickel Quilts book by Pat Speth and Charlene Thode.

That's a very cool quilt, Teresa! I like the gradient color scheme of the 4 patches and the dark border around it, too!

Outstanding! Just the right pattern and colors for a "man-quilt".

Perfect for a man, but I'd take it in a heartbeat! Flying Geese is one on my list of must-makes, too. Typical also is the fact that you say you had trouble with part of it, but it's not obvious to anyone looking at it.
