Paisley Parade

My newest quilt is done its name is Paisley Parade.  It is to be a gift to my friend Doug (if I can part with it).  This is the first of my "Man Quilts".  My wife when helping me find material for a quilt for me she kept telling me the purples and red's I was picking were not manly enough. So we have settled on black as manly so here we go a man quilt, read also about it here. In that post I talked about how Doug did not like the Manly blocks we got and he said Paisley is more manly.  So we went shopping any way the first of many quilts are done.

 I have to give her credit for almost all of the material choices in the quilts I make.  This rag quilt she cut all by her self and that is a HUGE part of the job.   Any way enjoy the nap.  One last thing I now have is labels for my quilt.  I did a crappy job attaching it (talk about the worst zig zag job of my life).  One last thing before I end.  Remember to post your own completes on my Link a Finish Friday and hold me to my goal of 52 completes in 52 weeks of 2012.

I love that little bit of red in that paisley. Definitely going to have to stop in at JoAnn's for some.

It's great finish, and I'm sure your friend Doug approves! I'm a big fan of both paisley and black & white quilts myself. It's wonderful that you have such a supportive and helpful spouse in your quilting and blogging endeavors. Sounds like you're a great team!

Very nice! A rag quilt is on my quilting bucket list; maybe for this year. You did a great job with yours! It would be hard to part with! I found you through Connie's Quilting By the River linkup. :)

Great quilt for your friend! Choose blues too! I made my husband a motorcycle quilt with blues, blacks, and a little orange for the Harley stuff. I like the black and white and Grey quilts - but you can throw in a little color and it it still manly!
Have a great day!

Wow! So gorgeous!! Yeah, that hint of red in the center paisley is terrific. Spouses who help with the drudge work of quilting are AWESOME. Snipping rag quilts, pinning sandwiches. . . I am in heaven the times I can get Scott to help me on those.
