    Working all day, measuring,designing a quilt...finally had to ask DH if I was measuring correct! Yep, you sure are. Told him what I was doing and he replied " can't see how that is going to turn out". Ok, were brave quilters, we cut as we all know this is going to work.....Well, I was correct with measurements, sewed it together. Displayed my design to him and he then replied "Wow" but now you need to add some darker greens, darker purples I am sure you have this in all your material downstairs. After going back & forth about the colors...I very politely told him, he TAKES ALL MY FUN OUT OF THIS FROM GOING TO THE LOCAL FABRIC STORE....:) Just wait until he wants to go to a local Antique shop for more player piano rolls and we go back & forth that I think he just may have that one in his collection already :) Gotta Love yum...he is my advisor (of colors) when quilting. Hope to display picture of it real soon.

    Can't wait to see! At least he takes an active role and is interested in what you're doing!

    That he does...he will look at my quilts and if he doesn't say "one word" and walks away....it is his polite way he doesn't like it. If he stands and looks at my blocks and then starts adding color...he likes it :) Can't wait for him to see the one I am making him as a surprise gift....Should get a "Kiss" out of it, right! :)

    Mine (husband) is usually polite, but noncommittal about my quilting. However, he went with me to a quilt shop while on vacation and was really getting into picking out a fabric for the quilt I am basting right now. He is a woodworker and I think he likes seeing the "puzzle" come together.

    They can be frustrating at time but at least he cares enough to be interested. It sounds like he has a good eye for color.

    My DH has no eye for color or design.
    DH leaves me alone except to say he likes something.

    I have to say that's better than what mine does!!! He rarely if ever even peeks in to see what I'm doing!! or if I am still alive for that matter!!! LOL, he does miss me if I don't feed him and I can get so lost in my work.... The only comment I can remember him saying is."I just don't get it, why cut all that perfectly good material apart just to turn around and sew it back together?" My mom who passed away in January was ALWAYS my biggest cheering section and fan. I miss her greatly!!! So be thankful of all those husbands who "participate" and cheer you on or help you out in any way, I'm always jealous of my friends whose husbands take an interest.

    Your husband is a dear. Any interest is a plus. I am husband-less so have to show my stuff to my grandsons and their girlfriends. They like the finished product.

    I have a tendency to not stop at "simple" but sometimes I want to do something quick and easy and DH always comes up with suggestions on what I should do to improve it (hence making it more difficult) ugh! but at least he's giving input.
