My husband's 25th Birthday is coming up and I am making a quilt for him. Typically, most of the quilts I make either end up going away as gifts, or they are commissioned projects. Can believe that even I do not have my own bed quilt? There is a lovely quilt on my bed but it came from Kohls! The one on the back of the couch is barely large enough to cover me up and I am only 5 feet tall! So what is my poor 6'2" hubby to do when he takes a nap? Well, worry no more, because I am making him one that will be big enough to cove him up! I have came up with a cool idea to make a quilt with all of the things he loved, or has ever loved! Things like Pokemon, and Legos from when he was a little boy, to favorite foods like Chipotle and Barq's Root Beer are all going to be a part of this quilt. I am so excited to see it done. It will be paper pieced and appliqued, and then machine quilted.
Hopefully it all turns out great! As I am working on the paper pieceing, I hope to make a video tutorial on how to do it for those of you who don't know. But here is a big tip: DON'T BE AFRAID! It is MUCH more intimidating than what it really is! Check back for more updates on how the quilt is coming along!
P.S. I got the paper-pieced patterns here
