For a long time, I have been writing that I am going to make my husband a blanket.
I’ve started a crochet one…
I started another crochet one….
I have yet to finish either one.
For his birthday this year (a biggie-50!), we bought him a nice, comfy leather recliner.
So I searched online for fabric that would look nice with the brown leather.
I found a flannel jelly roll on the Missouri Star Quilt Co. website and it had great reviews.
New to quilting, I made a nice quilt top using the MSQ Co. Jelly Roll Race tutorial (same I used to make my son’s quilt-which I’m happy to report he sleeps with every night!).
The colors look great together and it will look so nice with the recliner.
Plus, it is long enough for my six foot tall husband!
I’m not exactly in love with the polka dot stripes, but as a whole, I like it!
This one, I have chosen to send to MSQ do so some fancy quilting!
I chose the pattern “Autumn Leaves” and a nice brown and cream backing.
I plan on giving it to him for Christmas and the cut off date to receive back in time for Christmas is October 14th.
Luckily, he was out of the house yesterday and I was able to get the quilt top done in a short time.
I’ll post pictures when I receive it back!
Have a great week!
