I havent posted any projects for awhile, seems like everything is ready to be quilted, but I've been so busy with life and work. :)

I have been collectiing fabrics for my husband for a couple years. Most of the time he is with me and helps pick out what he likes. i have a huge 20 gallon tote with only fabric for him. So a few weeks ago I told him it was his turn. We went through magazines, books, the web. He just didn't really like anything. So I said how about a 4 patch alternating with a block. LOL He actually understood what I was saying, well almost. He said it was exactly what he wanted. Simple. So next I laid out all of his fabric and told him to pick his favorite, and then I grabbed a large group of cooridating fabrics and told him to pick out 5 to 15. He also picked the backing and quilting design. I told him I could do some turkeys or feathers or whatever, but nope, simple is his style. :)
Well, here is his creation. Simple, cozy, and just the right size.

Great job. As long as he likes it, that is all that counts.
