This first quilt is made from homespuns. I showed another quilt to a man friend of mine and he commented that he liked it but perhaps I could "man it up" some.
I thought about it and realized that most of the quilts I make are on the feminine or child side. I asked him to describe what HE would want and he told me he would love to have one that was like the quilts his grandma made. He said, "I don't know what the fabric was, but it reminds me of burlap." Well, I laughed out loud and said I am sure it wasn't made from burlap. I showed him some homespuns and he said, "Yes! That's it!"
So, I got busy and made a "manly" quilt to donate.
I surprised myself and really like this and so does Jack. I think I may have to make him one. Shhhh. Don't tell him.
And the final quilt was a kit I purchased when it was on sale from Craftsy.
It's called Arrow and I think it's a bit manly so I decided that fit the challenge.
My goal was to donate two quilts to each of the US charities and I've made it. Yay!
