    i am so (tired) of girly fabrics/quilts---i wanted to do something different-
    making this one with plaid homespuns and flannels- 4 rows laid out on my bed *2 rows to go*
    i think it looks masculine
    second picture is the rows going in the direction they are supposed to go when finished.

    4 rows laid out vertically-they belong horizontal

    That is a nice change from the usual prints. Plaids when all used together do give a masculine effect. Will you post another picture when it's finished?

    i will post pics of it all finished and quilted- first though i have to go in search of a few more *light* colored homespuns- i have plenty of darks for my last 2 rows---but no more lights (i was doing this with scraps)i was thinking about calling all my friends and relatives near by and trying to talk them out of old flannel shirts that are light colored...i really thought i would have enough---
    i guess if i can't find more lights i can put a border or 2 around it to get it up to size--
    best laid plans----

    Very nice quilt and great idea to use flannel and plaids. It is a beautiful, but masculine quilt.

    it takes 180 darks, 180 lights for a 106" quilt top.
    then 6 rows of 30 blocks

    gosh it was in a magazine probably in 2005-or 06 maybe-somewhere in there- when i'm home i can look it up and let you know which magazine- but it is a very very simple pattern-
    you cut 3 1/2" x 9 1/2" rectangles- lights and darks-
    put a dark right side up - place a light one right side down across an end- edges even-- stitch on the diagonal- trim the corner triangles- press toward the dark-
    you wind up with 3 1/2"x 15 1/2" (blocks)
    alternate ends as you lay them out- 30 across- stitch together into rows-
    6 rows gives you a 106" square quilt.
    takes

    I thought maybe you had made that out of old mens shirts.
    I really like the look of it and i'm sure the men would love the masculine influence.
