    Husband's Birthday Quilt

    My sweet husband's birthday is today. So I made him a quilt out of the Northwoods fabric that I had picked the main panel pieces and he picked which border and backing fabrics he liked. He likes the eagle fabric on the back of the quilt. I was able to put the quilt together, get it to and from the quilter and get the binding on without him finding out that I was getting his quilt done.

    Here is a picture of him holding up the quilt.

    This is a closeup of the back. I used a decorative stitch to put the binding on to match the quilting.

    That really turned out nice! Love the birch bark fabric surrounding the panels, and the backing is wonderful!

        He was thrilled to get it. After saying thank you, his question was did I want him to use it or put it up. I told him use it. There is only one quilt that I plan on making that will not be used and that is the wall hanging quilt that will go behind our bed. Even then years later when we take it down, I plan on using it. I want the quilts that I make to be used. Like Jenny said used until thread bare.

                  That's such a nice guy quilt. The backing fabric is wonderful...great job!! The last time I tried to make a surprise quilt for my DH he came home two days early from a hunting trip and caught me sewing it. We call it his 'surprise' quilt...lol!

                        Very nice quilt.....there are so many great panel fabrics out there...you inspired me! Love the fabric you used as a border around each block/panel. I also agree our quilts are made to be used!! I even have one I take to the beach! (Great way to show off) lol
