Default Brick wall for Christmas

This quilt is for my cousin at the request of his brother. Best gag gift I've ever made.

My quilting was purposely put through the letters in hopes it would look like it was "painted" on the wall. It looks good in person but was a little hard to photograph.

Thanks for looking.

I really like how you did this quilt. Letting the pieced quilt act as a backdrop for the letters really made the letters & Wiley Coyote show up beautifully. I may need to do one similar to this for a cranky husband. I wonder if he would get the point? Probably not.

Well done ! The wall 'graffiti' really stands out with the black shadows you added.

I like it a lot. DH would love it, although he would complain that he is not old (6 months younger than my 71) and never cranky.

It is so much fun to see a quilt that just brings a smile. This one fits the description of the concept. You have chosen the perfect combination of elements for this quilt. Great gift for you to make for a cousin to give his brother.
