Wildlife Quilt for Him

It doesn't matter what theme you prefer - cars, football, boats - the process is still the same. If you find the perfect fabric for your guy this is what you can make for him.

The perfect gift for him is his own personal quilt for kicking back for a nap, TV time, or simply sitting at the computer. It's great to have your own cover up that no one else gets to use but you – so it's always available for you when you want it

I found some realistic wild life printed fabric with blues and grays accent. Perfect I thought – not wild and crazy colors or silly looking animals. This is MANLY fabric. It wasn't panels that could be made into a ‘cheater’ quilt but that didn't stop me from fussy cutting my own panels and making this quilt.

I used one of my clear square cutting rulers and placed it over various animals in the fabric centering them within the square. This helped me to determine what size the blocks could be that allowed for an animal scene to be the central focus of the block.

Each block is 7 x 9 inches (cut out 8 x 10 inches) before any borders were added

The finished quilt is 38 x 48 inches
