    The picture in my avatar is the quilt I did for my husband because he is so patient and good about my induldgence in quilting. He actually will make dinner if I am involved with sewing. He realizes that I won't stop for food so he has to provide LOL Anyway, I did this one just for him for his suport and love.
    I saw a picture of this design in a magazine and love the dinamics of it so I desided to make a quilt for my hubby.
    I drew my own templates from the picture in the magizine.
    Truthfully, it was the most diffcult quilt I have ever done and I will not make another one. :roll: But then a person should never say "never"!

    What a gorgeous quilt, black and white is so striking. And what a nice thankyou gift to your DH, he must be so proud of your quilting projects.

    If I am engrossed in my sewing, my DH knows how to make himself some toast :)

    I know of the pattern and designer you're talking about. It looked difficult. You really did the pattern justice. This is beautiful!
