    King Size Quilt for My Brother

    I haven't been quilting long. My brother asked for a king size for his bed as his ex-wife took the one they had. Hope you approve, there are lots of mistakes, but my DSIL helped cover some with her quilting.Name:  Jeff1.jpg

    Well I approve!! Hope your brother does.
    Some of these fabrics remind me of Civil War fabrics...
    I especially like your leaf quilting.
    With so much good going on, who cares about little mistakes?

    These are the Civil War fabrics. I was having a hard time trying to find something I thought he would like. Decided on these and my DSIL has a LA so she gets the credit for all the quilting.

    Great looking manly quilt! You did a great job and your SIL's quilting is outstanding, too. Good job all around! I'm sure he is very happy with it.
