    DH's Journey to Arkansas quilt

    After I taught my DH how to sew, all he would make was quilts with 2.5 inch blocks. He has made about 80 of those tops. I never could convince him that there were other patterns out there that he could make using those blocks. Well, I finally convinced him. Here is his first Journey to Arkansas quilt top. For some reason, I think I see a lot of them in his future!! What do you think?

    He does a great job and has a good sense of color. You could also nudge him towards the irish chains too.

    Yes. He does everything by himself sewing wise. He still will not fill his own bobbin or put it in. If his machine messes up and I have to fix it for him, he won't even let me try it out on one of his blocks. I have to use something else. He is very adamant that he sews every stitch himself.

    He usually does sew while we talk. In fact, if he is awake and there isn't a ballgame on, he is on the machine!!

    I think that is wonderful, he did a real good job, much that I ever could ever do. I love that pattern, I saw one in white that he make last night on another page that is real good too. I would like to know what the pattern is called and do you have a pattern?
