i’ve never made a quilt for derek.
poor neglected husband.
so this year, for christmas, i put an end to the streak.
and made him this:
when i saw the modern neutrals at sewingly yours, i knew they would make a perfect manly quilt. the small prints were perfect for a scrappy trip along. so i got to work.
in november, i went on a sewing retreat with some friends, so i did as much prep work (in secret) as i could before my arrival. strips on strips on strips.
then i spent a full day sewing strips together in groups of six.
and then slicing the sewed up strips the other way to make strips again. 🙂
stacks of strips, ready to become blocks.
then my favorite. basting.
i quilted with an all over meander. bound in secrecy. and busted out the surprise on christmas…
all folded up.
ok. the end.
