Oscar's Manly Quilt Oscar’s Manly Quilt

Oscar wanted a manly quilt, being that he is 8 now. He had a list of demands: a cool design that was kind of an optical illusion, scooters, cars, squirrels, turquoises. I used the window panes template. It is backed in 100% cotton, in white, and bound in the same.
He loves it.

The Littlest Hobo The Littlest Hobo
By: Kit Lang, Ontario, Canada

I attended a fabric sale one year, & bought a bag of 500 4 x 5″ samples of shirt fabric for $2.

The shirting & red cotton looked great together, and I played until I made something I liked.

I called it “The Littlest Hobo” because a railroad song was on autoplay in my head while making it. :)

The manly quilt The manly quilt
By: tempestpilot, Hawaii, USA

Full-sized. The boy asked for a quilt with Star Wars and Batman, which made my eyes roll back in dread. I hacked up a bunch of small squares in the character fabric, paired them with black and metallics, and hand-quilted all the stars. Not hideous!

One of my very good friends was having her first Grandchild, to be a boy and they were going to name him Thomas.

I made this quilt for my newest grand-son. It is a wall quilt because of the embellishments (beads for their eyes, hand embroidery for hair, etc., and covered buttons for their belly buttons!). These little guys make you giggle when you look at them, exactly like my grand-son does!

    Okay…large, gorgeous pix are a mixed blessing. As if it weren’t hard enough to make choices when looking at postage stamp size quilts, seeing them huge and incredible makes it that much harder to decide! I LOVE it!

  2. Barb Colvin says:

    I, too, love the size of the pictures in your new format. However, I was finding this format frustrating.

    If I just clicked on the picture to get the larger image, I had to scroll up to see it, click the back arrow to get back to the rest of the designs, then scroll down to find the next quilt.

    To get around all that clicking and scrolling, I did a right click on the pic and selected ‘open in new tab’.

  3. Marie D says:

    As usual, the quilts are wonderful, but I have to agree with comment #2. It took me much longer to view this week’s entries. I haven’t figured out the right click technique yet. I’ll keep trying.

  4. Kit Bate says:

    Wow, what a fabulous array and what a lovely idea, I wish you every success with your venture, you have my undying admiration xxxxxxxxx

  5. donna horvat says:

    i like the crocodile quilt the best!

  6. shane says:

    Great contest! Hard to choose but I love the sunshine quilt!

  7. Lots of great ideas in these quilts!

    p.s. some iphone’s weren’t able to vote and a windows mobile phone wasn’t able to either. Not sure why, but thought you’d like to know.
