for the boys: an anniversary man quilt
I am participating in my first ever blog hop over at Madam Samm's Sew WE Quilt. This blog hop is just for the boys! I finished Mr. Relish's anniversary quilt back at the beginning of October by waited oh so patiently for my turn in this fun little blog hop. Please be sure to check out all the others hopping today!

I first told y'all about my plans for this quilt here, where I also shared my first Mr. Relish quilts.
I used Parson Gray's Curious Nature fabric and got a great deal for some 1/2 yard cuts at Hawthorn Threads. I even had leftovers to do the back and then for a little giveaway back in September(closed now) for all those that so humbly linked up their first quilt. Thanks so much for that! I loved reading the epidemiology of the quilting bug! lol
I used this plus quilt pattern by For the Love of George, but altered it a bit to accommodate the amount of fabric I had available and also wanted to make sure this quilt was long so it covered his tootsies. Final measurements ended up being 60 x 78 in.
I used natural Gutermann thread and just outlined all the seams. Easy enough for me!
That's all I got. Here's a little David Butler to leave you with (again)...

Happy Anniversary, Mr. Relish!
