    I think that's wonderful. My hubby goes to the quilt shops with me most of the time. He likes to talk to and tease the other ladies. He also enjoys telling anyone that will listen that he doesn't sew, but helps me choose colors.

    My DH doesn't have an interest in quilting, but is supportive of me and the time and money I spend on it. He is a fantastic woodworker, though, and has built a beautiful cabine for my sewing machine. He built me a nice cutting table many, many years ago, too. I mentioned to him several months ago that I think I want a different sewing table, and he told me to draw it up and he'll build it! Maybe a should take a break from quilting and get to the designing a new cutting table!

    Have fun with your hubby! Can't wait to see picture of the project.

    Sure is a big plus when they embrace your hobby, as long as they don't try to take over what you are trying to do!! terrt

    My husband doesn't do any quilting but he is so good at color and design. I ask his advise all the time. And he is always giving me great support and appreciation. He's the best!!!

    Good for you. I have a small quilt my husband pieced by hand when he was age 10. Its in tatters now as he is 78 but never even think of throwing it out. Men are not apt to ask questions but let me tell you they are watching. He has an excellent color sense and even built me a quilting frame.

    I can hardly wait until you post a picture of this quilt. I'm planning to do one with a boat with a man doing fishing with fish in the water.

I'm starting a quilt for him so we picked out some beautiful stuff. He kept filling up the cart!!!!! I'd better leave him at home next time.

    The quilt we are making is an underwater scene with corals, grasses, tropical fish, sea turtles and a big shark looming behind the grasses and a scuba diver going for a big shark tooth on the sandy bottom. DH is a diver and collects sharks teeth.

    He was up until late drawing the shark and corals for me to use as patterns.

    I love that man, the time we're spending together on this project is so special.
    Don't leave him home. Sounds like he really had a lot of good finds for you. lol.
