The Man Quilt (Bloggers Quilt Festival Entry)

AmysCreativeSide.com


It's been about a year since I have completed my man quilt, and it's found it's permanent home on the lounge room couch.



It was made for 'Mr Seraphym Handmade' who, after seeing me go a little quilting crazy (obsessed) innocently asked when I would make him a quilt. And for anyone who has made a man quilt, know it can be a bit of a challenge. So it was 'on' there an then, challenge accepted! I got right to work designing.


This quilt was my first go at paper piecing and designing my own quilt from scratch. For more insight into the process, see the original post here.

  2. Love it! My daughter has asked if i can make her a Motorcycle quilt as she has followed and been to the racing with us since she has been 2. I was thinking of doing the emblems and i am glad you have done this, we do have KTM from way back when in the shed for the paddock and I nearly got a duke when I was looking for my bike! Well done. Have voted you can check out my quilt in hand quilted section called Gelato
