    I realized lately that I have never made a quilt for DH. He uses all I do make but none have been just for him, so with our 25th anniversary approching in August I decided to make him one all of his own. He likes to snuggle on the couch with a quilt. Here is the top. It is a camp quilt. we have a camp in the woods where we go to fish and the bears like to tear bits off of on a rugular basis, so I used pine and bears and fishing fabrics. I hope he likes it.

    Yes DP9. I am going to peice the back but the binding will be the bearpaw print.

    he has been watching me all weekend peicing it. He has not asked anything about it. I really wonder what he is thinking.

    Very manly quilt and very nice thought. Where did you find the pine cone fabric? My son works all over the US and misses N Mich a lot. A bit of that in his birthday quilt would remind him of home.

    OH, I think DH will love it!! I love the fabrics you used in this one. Is it flannel? Looks so nice to snuggle under!! Good job.

    I love your DP9. The colors and your choice of fabric are perfect. What size squares did you start with? I made one but I started with a smaller squares, so I had to have more blocks. I loved doing this pattern.

    No it is not flannel. It is all cotton but really soft cotton. I started with 6.5 inch squares. So 18 inch nine patches so when they are cut apart and then sewn back together they ended up 17.5.

    Your quilt is beautiful and love the 'outdoorsy' fabrics you used. You should let us know what his reaction is once he is given this gift of love.

    It will be a while. August 24th is our anniversary. I peiced most of the back with the 6 inch blocks of the same fabrics except for the bear paw. That will be the edging of the back so I can pull it around to the front for the binding. I will show you a complete backing when I get it done. I am also going to use thinsilate batting. it should be very warm.
