    Stack n wack for DH, Way Up North

    This was a Christmas present for my DH. I had just enough of the focus fabric in my stash to make 15" blocks, the back shows the tiny bit of original focus fabric that I had leftover. The song, North to Alaska, by Johnny Horton has been a long time favorite of my DH, we sing it occasionally for friends and family when we want to get a good laugh. I sing the baritone part "way up north" while DH sings the verses. When I decided to use this north lodge, wildlife type print for his quilt, the name Way Up North seemed to fit it to a T.I made it "recliner" sized, about 56x70.

    Gorgeous quilt. It is awesome how different from the original fabric all the blocks turned out. The name is just perfect.
    Great job!

    Wow, the quilt you made for your dh is very striking! It is always hard for people to find patterns they feel are masculine. I think you have found the perfect pattern to use those "Male/northwoods" fabrics in. I will keep this in mind for the next time I need to make a quilt for a male (our family is heavily into nature/woods/animals). Thanks for sharing.

    Stunning quilt, I love the little black triangles they really make the blocks pop!
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    What a terrific quilt! I love the black diamonds around the quilt between the blocks and the border. It all looks very masculine, but pretty at the same time.

    That's a really nice quilt. Love the way the moose is centered in that one block, and the way you got dark green tips on all your stars. Great!
