Triangle QAL, Rows Joined!

I stitched my rows together this morning for the Triangle QAL, hosted by Paula over on her blog, Sassy Quilter!

The rows on my manly, beer-themed quilt went together fairly quickly. As I was trimming off the zig-zag edges along the side, my hubby walked in and saw the quilt top. Ooops! I just told him to act surprised when I give it to him once the quilting and binding are completed.

So off my hubby went to Home Depot while my son and I decided to take the quilt flimsy to a local park and get some pictures of it. The sun is shining and the leaves and flowers are bursting open in early spring.

One problem – the wind didn’t want to play along! (Or maybe it was playing along and just being frisky).

Here are some poses we tried to catch while the wind played with us:

Finally, I decided to place the quilt flimsy on the sidewalk and take a picture of it while standing on a bench, in between wind gusts.

I want to think up a clever, beer-themed name for this quilt, but I haven’t thought of anything good. Do you have ideas?

Enjoy!

  2. Love the quilt! How about “Beervana” for a name? Portland is known as Beervana because of all of its microbreweries . . .

  3. love your triangle quilt and your cute little model. How about it’s 5 o’clock somewhere. I was never good at naming quilts. mine are usually called blue triangle, red squares etc. LOL

  4. Well I just checked with the beer expert of the house and he would call it “What’s On Tap?”
    As for me I am drawing a blank!!! Turned out very nice–I really like the color combination.
