    I hope all the men will look at this and tell me. Of course, I can't really change it now can I? This one is for my Dad. He is 71 years young and made a comment on how he probably would never get one of my quilts. Yes, he played the guilt card on me. :roll: So my purple one goes to the back burner. Again.....

    So this is September fabric by Moda. The colors are a little bright in this pic but it's so hard to get yellow right on the camera. I think I will border it in black when I get it all together.

    It is going to be pretty. As for manly, it is fall leaves. Men rake leaves. Therefore leaves are manly!

    I think the colors and the leaf pattern were excellent choices for a man. I know my husband would like something like that. And the black border would just be perfect to frame it all.

    With him laying the guilt trip, He already appreciates your quilts. So he would love any that you make for him. BUT THIS ONE HE WILL LOVE!

    I am not a man, but I love it. LOL! He is going to be surprised when he gets this. Bless his heart, he wants one bad to try and make you feel so guilty. :D
