I looked for a quick and easy pattern that I could put together quickly… had to be masculine, and the recipient’s favorite color:   black.  So this black and tan version of the “New Wave Quilt” by Elizabeth Hartman that I found at  ohfransson.com did the trick!  The hardest part about it was finding enough fabrics that had black and tan in them!  I changed it up a little big from the one on her site… making it longer and narrower. Machine sewn, machine quilted.  It’s the perfect size for a guy to take a nap under, or for a guy and his two sons to cuddle up in and watch a movie.  All it needs is a label and it’s good to go (after I show it off at quilt guild next week, that is!).

Hope my brother likes it!

  1. I have been trying to find a quilt to make for my boyfriend that isn't too masculine or too girly–something that we would both really like–and this is so perfect! I love the black and tan… If things go according to plan, I think I'll have a similar quilt sewn up in time for Christmas!
