Birthday Quilt

Sorry that I didn't post last week, but I was in Sydney visiting my sons as they both had their birthdays. They were born 2 years less 1 day apart. My baby is now 20 and my older son is 22.
Before I show you the birthday quilt, i though I'd include my second attempt at pleated log cabin.
This time I made another cushion cover using one large block. It measures about 40cm square. This one is for me and I have one more to make which will be a xmas pressie for one of the girls I work with.


Here is the quilt I made for my son's 22nd birthday.
It is called ' I Can't Believe It's a Beginner' by Margot Languedoc of http://www.thepatternbasket.com.
It is made mostly with Bound To The Prairie 2 fabrics. I made it at http://www.cottageonthehill.com.au
I think that it is very dark and masculine, which is the effect I had hoped to achieve.

We missed you Patch, you will have to get a laptop to keep in touch with us......
The cushion looks great and the quilt, well, just magnificant.
Very masculine. What about No. 2 Son, does he want one now?

What a beautiful quilt for a boy. You have done a good job. I hope your son was happy with it. I like your cushion too. My 2 sisters have birthdays one day apart and 4 years. It is always a busy birthday time in our family.

The quilt is wonderful! I love the colour choice - perfect for a guy-quilt! The cushion is great too! ....so pleated Log Cabin has it's use... *lol* I know I've been negative to the technique...
