I'm so happy that I'm finally making a quilt for my husband. He puts up with a lot of nonsense from me and he's extremely supportive of my quilting habit. I tend to hog my summer blanket, so it is about time I made him one of his own.
All of these photos are progress pics off of instagram from the last few weeks.
Each block is 10" and the finished quilt is seven blocks wide and nine blocks long, so it is roughly twin size.
I'll use bamboo batting again to make it a nice, lightweight quilt.
In case I forgot to mention earlier, the pattern is Boy's Nonsense, a tutorial by Leila of Where the Orchids Grow. It is a really striking pattern and I love how much she taught me about value in the process of picking out fabrics for these blocks.
My parents are visiting this week. My dad is 6'1" and he still had to stand on a stool for the photography session. He was just as patient as Ben is when holding quilts up for the proper photography :)
This quilt is called "I think I like you" and is named for a song that we both like. The quote, "I'd watch C-SPAN with you if you asked me to," always cracks me up. Isn't that what like/love is all about?
