I have racked my brains trying to decide what to make my 39 year old son for a quilt. I have made everyone else in the family one but him and I didn't want it to look too girlish so I found these patterns from a couple books I had that I really like. I am kind of limited with my fabric choice because I am shopping from my stash for the time being. I tried to put together a patch work block, got it crooked and out of shape [don't you just hate those days!] so I reverted back to good old applique, which I love to do very much.
