After much anticipation,
I am pleased to introduce to you my guy, Ty!
Apparently, he has always liked the color red..
But his favorite color is actually blue.
He has a lifelong passion for things on two wheels...
He may be ALL MAN now,
but I assure you he is very much a BOY AT HEART...
He tends to keep me laughing!
And sometimes on the edge of my seat!
We all know it takes patience to be the husband of a quilter, eh?
For years now I have been stashing fabric, and every now and then I will show Ty some fabric with the promise, "I will stash this one for your quilt" -- yada yada, right?
Well, thanks to Mdm Samm at Sew We Quilt for hosting this blog hop, 'For the Boys', and as well to Amy at Sew Incredibly Crazy for cheering us all on, and let us not forget Camelot Fabrics for providing such generous incentive(s), I have been properly motivated, and Ty has, at long last, been properly rewarded!
It was really fun sorting through and adding to the pile. Here is a sampling:
A ZigZag just seemed well suited to Ty, so I drew it up and showed him the sketch on his Birthday. (A quilt plan. Some present, right? I should have wrapped it!)
He wasn't quite satisfied, so I drew it up on EQ6 and he helped me add a bit of Ty-like Style to give it a bit more pizzazz. The drawing was terrific, and fun, but of course, the months went by...
Again, we have this Hop to thank for the fab-finish!
This park is also an interpretive one, with native plants. Since I am not native, I learn something every time I am there. These big peanut things caught my eye,
And Ty's quilt...
Couple more photos for you and we can get on with the giveaway...
Here is Mr. Juki at work, quilting the Star Wars patch.
And the Ty Ty Ty Ty patch I printed...
Also the backside of the pillow. This is the first time I quilted a backing for a pillow that also has a hidden zipper.
Only the best for my Ty;-)
I must admit, their placement did not suit the quilt well though. Now that they are in pillow form, Ty has adopted the orphans with gusto, so all is not lost...
One more thank you to our ambitious, motivational leaders before we wrap this up!
