Hubby's Quilt ...

Thought I'd share a picture of the quilt I made for hubby using repro civil war blues and browns offset with shirtings, a small border of dark brown, and a wider border in my favorite blue fabric from the quilt. I think it turned out very manly ... no sissy colors for my macho carpenter dude. This was my first attempt at setting blocks on point ... believe me, I wouldn't want you to examine my points very closely!!!! All in all though, I'm pleased with the results and even MORE pleased that it's no longer sitting in my UFO basket.

I love your quilt ! And your penny rug, too.. very original. I like the colors you used.
I could be like Sue and say "no they are terrible you must send them to me immediately".. but I think you'd see right thru that, lol.
As far as the points not matching, if you look at a lot of antique quilts, they don't match either. It's still a great quilt, girl !
