    My husband is from Arizona and loves magnolias. When he asked me to make him a quilt I was really surprised because he really doesn't show much interest in my hobby!!
    I machine embroidered the magnolias.

    This quilt started out as a lap size and some how ended up 90x90.

    It's wonderful. I love the deep red. Really sets off your embroidered blocks.

    Beautiful work and a beautiful quilt. Truly a form of art. Funny how quilts just grow and grow and grow.

    Thank you everyone!!! He picked out the fabric and at first I thought 'oh no' it will never match the magnolias, but it does.

    Never thought about a magnolia quilt for a man. You created a beautiful quilt. He is a blessed husband to have you.

    That is just beautiful. Wonderful colors and I love the embroidery. My quilts seem to grow like that too.

    I wish my husband was interested in my quilting. All I get is rolling of the eyes when ever I need advice.

    Beautiful! Husbands don't often ask for quilts, so when they do we try to do our best to please them! Looks like you're right on the money--I'll bet he loved it!

    :) Beautiful quilt, very unusual combination of reds with magnolias. I am from South, we usually have greens, etc with them. Really like your combination much better, must keep this in mind for future projects. Hubby must be very pleased.
