A mustache quilt, why of course! I've been a bit obsessed with mustaches lately, and I HAD to make a mustache quilt and YOU HAVE TO, too! It's perfect for Movember! Ransack the closet or cruise the thrift store and pull out some nice men's shirts. Collect a few "hair" fabric scraps, and you're half way to making this quilt. Using Alethea's border-as-you-go technique, the quilt sews up quickly and easily. Hand or machine stitch your favorite names for the mustaches and you'll get a smile every time someone looks at this quilt! Full size patterns for each mustache, a quilt assembly diagram, and embroidery templates for the names are included in the download. So you can just print, trace, sew and giggle! P.S. How awesome would this quilt be in funky modern fabrics? I might just start one today! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY basic quiltmaking skills SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 47" x 54"

Quilting begins and ends with "noun fabrics" with me! I especially love fabrics with people and everyday objects! Creating quirky quilts using large-scale fabrics is my main creative work, and I can barely be patient enough to finish one project before I'm on to the next one (two or three!). My patterns are quick and simple, which reflects my impatience and enthusiasm! As the author of two quilting books, "Maverick Quilts: using large-scale prints, novelty fabrics & panels with panache" and "Dream Chair Quilts: 7 patterns for whimsical wall hangings," I am lucky to be able to travel all over and teach my maverick style other exuberant quilters. Join me in creating fun, cheerful quilts!
