Project Description

What are you most proud of? I really like the way it looks. Since I choose individual fabrics, it was nice to see that they look good together. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you choose your own fabrics, I wouldn't recommend getting stripes. Also the fabric pattern colors needs to be equal. i.e. 2 blues, 2 reds, 2 browns, etc. I started with an odd combination and had to fix it. Mine was 5/5/4/4. (Didn't work) This is not a fast quilt, but worth the extra time.

What you will need

  • A variety of fabrics from different lines.

Q&A with Brook

dottyeb asked:
Lovely!! It is hard to find quilt patterns that are fit a 'masculine' decor. The pattern is bold and the colors had a wonderful masculine feeling. Nice job!!
Brook answered:
Thank you so much! I needed to hear this. : )
Sandy Bartolin asked:
I think it is beautiful! Would you be interested in sharing the pattern and instructions. I've been looking for something to do in a quilt for my husband.
Brook answered:
Thank you. The x's and o's are shown in Jenny Doan's Quilting Quickly course II. I used 1/2 yd. of 20 different fabrics. Blue, red, black & brown, ( 5 of each color). This makes a lg. queen size quilt. You will also 3.75 yds. of the white. Have fun!
Bev B asked:
WOW is this ever a nice looking quilt. Was it hard to do? I have always wanted to make something like this but have never seen one made up already. You sure made a number one hit with this quilt. Wonder what it would look like in purples, blues, yellows, and pinks? Not that those are my favorite colors, it's just that those colors I seem to have a lot of fabrics in. Any suggestions as to a good lighter color combo would work good with this pattern?? You really did a Great Job on this one!! Bev B
Brook answered:
I used 1/2 yd. of 20 different fabrics. Of course it can be done with one or 20 different fabrics. The colors you listed sounds good together. I also like lavendars and teals togther. Make sure yu post a picture of it when your done.
