    Yesterday I started designing a quilt for him. Shhhhh.....it's a surprise.

    Here it is. The blocks will be 9-1/2" made up of two 3-5/8 squares, one 6-7/8 square and one 10 X 3-5/8 rectangle.

    Ok, now here's the top done. This went very fast.

    Thanks. I just finished cutting out the fabric for it. No occasion, just a "because I love you" thing.

    He'll love it and be so proud. I know I love it. The "just because I love you" is sweet. DH brought me roses yesterday morning and on the card it said i just wanted to remind you that I love you. I love those Just because I love you moments.

    Thanks. Hubby finally asked me today who it was for and said he really liked it. I said I don't know :lol: . At least I know he likes it! :lol:

    I started to quilt it stitch in the ditch style and it looked so awful, so I ripped it out and will requilt it another way tomorrow.

    If anyone wants to make one, it is 58-1/2 X 68. blocks 10" and
    30 (10 X 3-5/8 rectangles)
    30 ( 6-7/8 squares)
    60 (3-5/8 squares)

    feel free to make it.

    It's so much fun to see the plan turn into the real thing--a beautiful, perfect for a hubby quilt! :D :D :D

    Was it an EQ6 design?
