    Truckin' Pinwheels

    I made this quilt for my DH, he is a truck driver and uses it in his truck bunk. I just quilted it with a wavy decorative stitch on the seam lines used a twin size sheet for the backing. Needs to be sturdy since it is used and abused and washed a lot.

    I really think that your husband will get good use out of this very manly quilt. Have only made pinwheels once and threatened not to ever do them again. Of course I will eat those words! Nicely done

    Question your label
    Quilt 4 means your 4th quilt complete?


    good idea

    Great Job! I am sure he will love it. I really like the wavy quilting you did on it. I never would have thought to do that. Thanks for sharing

    Yes it is my 4th complete quilt, I decided on the first one to number them. My first was a large king size that I hand quilted, I was shocked to discover I love to hand quilt! The last three have been machine quilted to do time constraints. I am currently working on one with my mom that is for my grandmothers 90th birthday in October and and we are applique (my first time for that also) and hand quilting. I have four more quilts and a wall hanging designed and fabric for that I hope to get done my Christmas! I better pick up the pace!

    It IS nice & manly! I find guys' quilts hard to do, but I love what you did with this one! Looks like he's pretty fond of it, too! Kudos!!!

    Actually my mother in law made the label for me on her embroidery machine, usually I just hand stitch them.
