    man's quilt - cheaper by the dozen

    Our minister's 10 year anniversary with our congregation was this month. I made him a hunting/fishing quilt since those are passions of his. This quilt spend a couple of months in Time Out because I couldn't get the tension right in my FMQ and had birds nests on the back that took forever to rip out. Sigh.

    Pattern - Cheaper By the Dozen (a FQ pattern). I added the blue sashing since the blocks seemed too busy to put together without it.

    I wish I could remember what web site had the fabric - I'd order it again!

    Oooooh! This is fantastic! The sashing really works well to calm the quilt.

    This looks like it could make a good 'guy' quilt... but is it possible to see a better pic of it to view the entire quilt please?

    Next time, grab some extra fabric and batting to experiment with tension until u get it right. Then you can spend alot less time with the seam ripper. Great quilt.

    For some reason those are the only pics I have. Usually I lay the entire thing out and take a picture, but didn't do that this time. Sorry 'bout that. This pattern has 2 blocks - you cut 12 fat quarters into 6 rectangles each and make two blocks. Then you turn those blocks as needed. So ... once you've seen those two blocks, you've basically seen it all.

    Here's a post I did when I first started working on it. The borders can be seen here:

    It looks like some of the fabrics might be from the following line. (I used these in a quilt.)

    Shawnan you are terrible. I saw the website went to look at the fabric and oh noooooooo free patterns , 30 pages and t least one hour later came back. Drooling over and downloading fab patterns.
    I'm sure the beginning mans quilt was there. Ohhhh.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    He'll love it! I am finding out as I make more quilts that I like to put the sashing In between squares so it makes it look calmer and less busy
