Such has been the case for the past two weeks or so because I've been working on a new design.
I've almost finished with the center top. I have a few more elements to add and I just cut out the first of the two remaining borders. When finished, it'll measure approximately 86" x 96".
I don't know about the men in your life but my husband has been bugging me to make a "MAN QUILT" for some time now. I've been toying with the idea for a while and started the preliminary sketches a couple of months ago but laid it aside when I was asked to do the two projects for Primitive Quilts & Projects magazine.
Well, about two weeks ago I decided to pull it out again and began to seriously work on it. Mr. Painted Quilt is an avid fisherman so the theme was a given.
I made a few changes to the preliminary layout and line drawings in order to accommodate the new images as they crept into my head. As I mentioned above, there's still some work to be done and when it's complete, I'm hoping to release it as a pattern.
As with my Safe Harbor quilt, I asked for your help to come up with a title. I'm now asking for your help again and of course the person who comes up with the winning title...which I'll ask you to vote on after I pick the few that appeal to me...will be given one of the patterns.
Two names we came up with are "Camp Wilderness" and "Catch & Release" but I'm sure you all can come up with something better.
I guess I'd better get back upstairs and start to work on the final two borders, one of which includes over 100 flying geese! It's a good thing I like making them!
