The Final Day of For the Boys Hop!! & Giveaway


 I have had nothing but fun during this hop


http://www.sewwequilt.com/


and being your head cheerleader. 


When, I heard that I was going to
cheer this hop, I got busy
right away.


 My boys all love to cook.  So, I decided
that they needed some
nice towels to have for
their kitchen when they get older.


I finished all seven of them.
  I used Aunt Martha's iron on
transfers. 



Then, I decided, I just couldn't stop there. 
 I needed to quilt something up.


I had difficulty just finding the material
that fit the design I had in my head.  
Even the white material
at the quilt shop had bows and flowers in it.
Yuck!!!
All types of little boy and gobs of girl material,
but a very small selection that screamed
 boy teen / tween.
But after an hour of searching,
my son and I had picked
out the material for his
quilt.
 It is another one of my larger quilts that
I have finished.  Measuring
around 80"x 90".  


My son calls it
The Highway to You Know Where Quilt!!
(His exact words)
I guess it depends on which
way the arrow is pointing.
 Hahaha!
I used some straight line quilting with Aurifil
variegated grey #4670.  It blended so well
into the dirty grey looking background.



Well, that is all I finished here, so



Go check out the rest of these
super talented ladies and if you missed the other days
