    This quilt goes to Kim's husband Ralph; it is a Turning Twenty pattern called "Superman." Ralph and Kim are two of our dearest friends.

    I saw the watches and keys at Hobby Lobby, but didn't have a plan for them so we didn't buy them, although I knew they would make a great guy quilt. A few weeks ago we saw the medallions on the back of the quilt at Joann and I knew it would go perfectly with the watches. We loved the medallions so much we bought almost the whole bolt, then had to go back to HL for the watches and keys. Then we went on a shopping spree for the rest of the go-alongs. I bought half yards and put together another bundle so I can make another quilt (for someone Ralph doesn't know of course) in the future. This is another of our personal favorites.

    Thanks for looking.

    I really liked the red/black but now you post this one. The browns/blacks are fabulous. Don't blame you for buying enough for two.

    Nice quilt! My best friend bought me fabric for Christmas and included was several yards of the medallion. I love it too.

    Completely awesome guy quilt. He will love it! Couldn't be a better set of fabrics for a guy. It wouldn't surprise me to see something like this in Hemingway's study, draped across an overstuffed brown leather recliner next to the solid mahogany bookcase wall with the slide away ladder to the ceiling. Beautiful!
