    A few years ago, my DH surprised me with a quilted clock for our anniversary. He had made it himself. To do so, he adjusted the Dresden Plate pattern from 16 to 12 increments, bought the fabric; realized the fabric was off and bought a different line and used my sewing room and supplies.

    Someone had asked for me to post a picture. Here is the surprise and I love it (and him):

    Thank you for showing the picture.
    I think a lot of hubbys are really supportive, they just don't always know how to get involved and show it.

    Very cool!!!! Tell me, though, what do you mean by, "the fabric was off"? Do you mean the cuts or the fabric choices themselves?

    What a creative idea!!!

    Nope, as a matter of fact, he had to call his Mom to walk him through the process of running the machine. She told me later that he called her in a total panic "OMG I killed the machine!!!!!!!!!!" He had run out of bobbin thread - lol.

    The whole time he was using my room, I thought I was going crazy. Every day, something else got moved - you know - just a little.....

    His first pick was "piggy pink" AND he was smart enough to hide the fabric. HE KNEW that I would immediately recognize rogue fabric in the mix.

    Wow what a nice guy! My hubby would never in a million years try quilting. He wouldn't ever even try sewing. That was very thoughtful of your guy to make this for you. He's a keeper for sure.
