HERE IS A REAL MAN QUILT!

I couldn't wait to show you this beautiful quilt.  Gene (Lee Ann's husband) made this quilt and quilted it himself!  He did a wonderful job.  Lee Ann told me he picked out the fabrics himself and decided to use the Scrap Crazy Template from Creative Grids to make the blocks.
 This is a close up of one of the blocks.  What an interesting layout.  I think I'm going to try that template!
This is a close-up of Gene's quilting.  Congratulations, Gene, on a job well done!  Hope to see more of your quilting.!
