Man quilt, yet again

The march of the man quilts was so 2010 for me, and let’s hope I’m not going to do many more man quilts in my immediate future.  I’m ready for super feminine stuff… not sure what yet, but we’ll see.  So let’s finish out this quilt.  This was a commission that I shipped off in December for a sweet boy named Seth.  Nope, not Nacho Daddy, a different Seth.  When my childhood BFF and I would go places with her family, we’d each be responsible for one of her little brothers, Seth and Nathan.  I always had Seth, and Brandi always had Nathan.  I just have a soft spot for Seths, I suppose, but especially for my first Seth.

Seth is all grown up, and his mama said he has a brown bedroom, so I grabbed some fabrics that I loved, and threw them together.  This is based on the pattern Plain Spoken.  I’m not sure what book it’s in .  There is also a similar one in Cherry House’s book, City Quilts (which is an awesome and inspiring book).  In fact, let me just tell you.  If you want to figure out how to look at everyday inspiration around you and convert it to something quilty, kind of like I am doing with the quilt for Aunt Ruth, then you might want to check this book out.  It really does a great job of taking you from her inspiration photo to the final product.  Love. That. Book.

What’s your favorite book right now?

    seth LOVES his quilt and has removed everything else from the bed. i must say the picture is lovely but the quilt is so much more when viewed in person. the patterns, color combo and the meander all come together for a true manly vision. it is a BIG quilt!! but fits his jacked up bed perfectly. your size “guesstimate” was on target! thanks for taking care of seth back in the day. glad you have one of your own now.

    I actually wouldn’t mind having that quilt for myself even if it is a man’s quilt, My favorite book at the moment is Sew Serendipity, she has really cute apparel made from quality quilters cotton.
