    I just finished my DH quilt that was suppose to be for his birthday on Aug 1st. The pattern was called "Just Can't Cut It" using 12 inch squares so it was easy. I chose fabrics that reminded me of him so it isn't the prettiest quilt but it will be special to him I hope. I'll make it again someday using pretty fabrics. Thanks for looking.

    You are not that late. I know of some who are years late.

    I love the red kerchief fabric with the tractor fabric, great idea

    What a lovely gift. And the fact that you chose fabric that is him makes it extra special. Thank you for sharing.

    It's great. You've followed the golden rule - blokes just don't like pretty, to them it looks icky. Love the tractors, and the outer border holds it all together so well.

    You know 5-6 weeks late isn't THAT late. It is really nice. I love making things for my hubby. I know he gets most of the quilts I have made over the years. He is my enabler anyway.

    That's a darling quilt! When I looked at the first pic I thought I saw some corn cob fabric and thought oh! that's perfect for a farmer. When I looked at the second pic I realized that it's school bus fabric instead. I'm still laughing at myself. It's hell when the eye sight starts to go, lol! Your hubby will love this...bet he shows it to all his friends that drop in for coffee.

    Your husband looks like a sweetie. He and I share a birthday, so he must be a "nut" too!

    His quilt is a riot and I am sure he just loves it. What a wonderful way to celebrate his birthday with something he can wrap in that reminds him how much his wife loves him. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
