Default Think outside the Toolbox- Manly yes but I love it too!

I saw this fabric and immediately thought of my son! Love the hammers, saws, vices, pliers, screwdrivers, and on and on...... The fabric is from Quilting Treasures and is called Craftsman. I designed the quilt top using EQ8. The back is Shannon mocha minky and the quilting pattern is from Anne Bright and is called Toolbox. It stitched out wonderfully even though there are lots of stops and starts. He is going to love it! The binding is rulers from the same fabric line.

Wow! Great design work, Steph, and the fabric and quilting are perfect complements. Bet you can't wait to give it to your son.

Your quilt is awesome and would be a treasure for any young man aspiring to be a builder/carpenter. Your choice of backing and quilting is perfect.
