    The dog at my husbands quilt so I need to make him a new one. I'm doing the hugs and kisses mystery but I like a lot of piecing in my quilts and am just a little afraid that it will be too simple for my taste. So I created this monstrosity in EQ. I think it's definitely manly enough. I let my husband pick out the blue which is a bit darker than what is shown. I picked out the rest. So what do you think am I crazy? I think it's doable, though not in a weekend!!

    The size is 64x64 just the right size for curling up on the couch on movie night.

    It doesn't look too daunting to me :-)
    I say go for it!
    You have a blessed man to have a wife willing to make such a beautiful quilt for him.
    Get LOTS of cuddle time under it too.

    I love your design and can't wait to see it done. I love a challenge--I can only do so many simple designs then I lose my motivation. I take on something difficult and when I need a break from that I'll do an easier pattern for a while. And no, I don't think you'll get that one done in a week-end LOL!!
    Good luck and keep us posted on your progress.
