I made this quilt for my neighbour Daniel using some shirts of his that I snaffled off him.
I have to resist taking shirts off people's backs when I see them
but instead beg them to remember me when they throw them out.
Daniel gave me several plaid type shirts which I paired with some neutral fabrics
to make what I think is an awesome man quilt.
I used my own pattern "The Everyday Quilt" which I love
I love the simplicity of it, and I love how it looks when it's crumpled on the bed or the sofa.
I did try and take some pics on one of our earthquake fences.
A beautiful old hotel used to be on this site,
it had been restored and used for commercial businesses.
It looks to me like the foundations of something new are starting here.
It was frightfully windy and the light was too bright,
but you get an idea of the shades of colour in the quilt.
Dust from hundreds and hundreds of cleared sites is the new hazard for this summer.
I can see the time when we will only venture out with masks :(
I took these inside just so I could get the actual colour of the quilt.
I'm stoked with how it turned out.
The backing is awesome too, a brown paisley paired with this vibrant spot.
And the binding is my favourite binding ever.
Why are stripes so hard to find?
These are truly lovely.
I left the pockets on just for a little detail.
Another successful finish.
But not the last for the year,
still one or three to go.
How are you going with your to-do list??
