Well, it's finally Friday again, and you know what that means! It's time to get our whoop whoop on!! Are you ready? I know I am - I've been keeping this one under wraps for a couple of weeks now!
This is the quilt I made for my husband for Father's Day!
The checkerboard blocks are made using this technique that I discussed on the blog during the Sweet Sixteen quilt-along.
The fabric is More Hearty Good Wishes by Moda, Kona natural for the cornerstones, and Kona indigo for the background.
I quilted it with wavy horizontal lines hoping to evoke the feeling of the "motion of the ocean". Thread is Glide white.
And the backing is another of the More Hearty Good Wishes prints, a natural background with sailing ships, lighthouses and whales on it in indigo.
I managed to completely surprise my husband with this quilt - thankfully he's not on Instagram yet! This is the first quilt I've made that was specifically for him, from the day I picked out the fabric until the day I gave it to him. Always before I've been making a quilt and he said he liked it, or I decided it might be a good one for him, since I was making it anyway. He seems to like it - he keeps showing me "neat things" he finds on the quilt like I haven't ever seen it (LOL!) I was so glad I got it finished in time for Father's Day!
So - - - can I get a whoop whoop?
