    Well, Ladies.......as a follow up to my topic,

    ....................."SOMETHING FOR HUBBY TO DO"..................

    the job is almost completed......maybe I shouldn't use the word job but as of now, not too sure how to describe it !!!!

    I mentioned that I was going to make wooden outdoor quilted blocks and then turned it over to my husband......Here are the results..I think that he did a marvelous job....what do you think?

    The quiting boards are all painted but they still have to have a coating sprayed on them for outside protection......and I do think that they need a frame.....
    better known as a binding.

    So, what do you think? He did a pretty good job, wouldn't you say?

    I'm keeping him........MaryJane

    Thanks, I thought so also.

    I was going to use them on the garden shed but I think that one will go to my daughter......she has rustic looking shingles on her home and maybe one of these will look good there........if she wants one...

    we shall see.........otherwise, who knows where they will hang....

    have a good day, MaryJane

    Those are great! Suggested to my DH that he do some and he wants to know what kind of wood your DH used.

    Do you mean to tell me that your hubby took perfectly good wood, cut it up, connected it back together and then covered it up???
    hmmm ... LOL
    He won't buy it, either ... hubby says there is a difference but I keep trying.
    THose are really grand ... maybe he won't be so retired when he starts selling those beauties, eh?
    I hope he knows how fortunate he is to have a wife who understands "hobbies" and is an encouragement to him.

    OK, MaryJane. It looks like you've really started something here!! I also just showed them to my DH and his response was "Oh, that's interesting." What that means in Tom-speak is "Oh no!! Another project!!" I love them. How big are they? I have a perfect spot on our garage to hang one. Thank you for posting this--now I can't wait til spring. Please post again when you put them in your garden.

    Omak.....No cutting, no connecting and no covering.......unless you mean the covering with paint....just a lot of taping and painting and waiting for it to dry.....
    and then some more taping and painting.....and so on...........

    but it kept him busy....and I do think that they out pretty nice.

    Mine are 20"x20"...I did it that size so it would be easily divided for the individual blocks. I went online for quilting blocks and had my choice of many.......
    and the rest was up to him.

    Your hubby did a great job! You might be able to hire him out to make these even bigger for sides of barns, top of doors at quilt shops, any outside buildings etc.

    He has a talent!

    Those look beautiful. They could brighten up a shed or house . What kind of would did he use , and what kind of sealer to protect it? Do you think they would hold up in winters with the freezing temps?

    I think that this is a great idea for a plaque next to your front door. Especially if you paint thier last name on it in white, centered.

    I am thinking many quilter's would pay good money for such a plaque. Is hubby looking for some extra money?

    I like it, can you tell?? LOL!

    Great quilt blocks. How about putting legs on them for patio tables?
