Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
My husband loves going with to help choose fabric. He doesn't mind when I buy fabric, as long as we fit into our monthly bills. I think he gets more excited about choosing fabrics than I do. Today he discovered my EQ7 program. he played on it for over an hours. He loves it. He designed about 5 different quilts. Chose the blocks and fabrics and layout and everything. My husband is very supportive. He is like Bridget's husband and notices if I don't ask for his opionon. He loves telling me what he likes and dislikes. He looks through the quilting magazines with me too.
Bridget the 1968 Camaro sounds good too. Love to see a pic of it.
Only once has my DH picked out fabric to use in a quilt. I was making a wall hanging for our grandson when he became an Eagle Scout. DH went to the fabric shop with me and picked out the fabric. It worked out fine. He has never said a negative word about me buying lots of fabric but, if he did I would just have to point out all the money he spends on the 1965 Mustand he so loves to work on. We both have our hobbies. He does his thing and I do mine and we respect and admire each others work.
My husband has always supported my quilting. About 8 years ago he started buying fat quarters one at a time I never asked why then one day I threaten to use his stach if he did not do something with them. He went out purchased the quilt pattern by Judy Niemeyer Misty Mountain Pond sat down and took his time and made it using black and white fabrics.
Yes he took over a year but he was working two jobs and was on several civic committies so he did not have a lot of time.
The ladies at our quilt guild figured he would start and never finish he surprised them. Now he is designing a landscape quilt and gathering fabric for a bargello at the same time. So I now have to wait on him at the quilt store.
OMG! OMG!! Thats all I can say ! It just about took my breath away!!! WOW!!! Is he sill making quilts ? Sure hope so ,he is a great quilter!!!
