What do you reckon?

Fair swap?


 I took up this quilting hobby quite awhile ago. It seems like everyone else has a quilt and not my darling husband. I have finally remedied that.  Here is his Twister quilt.



 I gave it to him, then took it straight back. I felt a bit mean, but it is also my entry for display in the Queensland Quilters show this October.
It was made with a layer cake of  'Comma' by Zen Chic for Moda and I used the largest Twister ruler, by CS Designs.

But look what he made me!

I've always liked the quirky Adirondack chairs. Can't decide if it's going in the garden or on the patio.
I've since found out there is a matching footstool. If anyone knows where to get that pattern/plan, let me know. DH T has said he would make one.

I think we both got something we liked.

Take care,
Cheryl

What a win, win. The twister pattern is so effective and I love the colours of yours. You have quite a crafty man there. He's done a great job on your chair. They are a timeless classic. Now if it is a bit chilly, you could borrow his quilt while sitting on the chair.
