The DJ Quilt and Pattern

Needing a masculine and simple quilt, I was inspired from a favorite shirt to create The DJ Quilt. The free PDF Pattern is available here. With enough fabric to make two tops, they were started and finished in one weekend. I sandwiched both, and started quilting on the first one until I had enough practice on the different designs, then moved over to the gifted top.

Since the sample quilt also turned out pretty good, it will be donated to the local Children's home -- our guild is a little short on quilts for the young boys.

On Friday, The DJ Quilt class was presented at our local guild meeting. Before coming home, I took a few pictures of some of their color variations which are below. Sat down at the computer, NO INTERNET! After waiting, waiting, and more waiting, I just checked the wires ... it helps to replug everything! Sorry cable company, I take back everything I said.

Thank goodness Sarah leaves her Friday Linky Party open until tonight. I am heading over to her Confessions of a Fabric Addict right now.

Very neat quilt, Jamie! And you're right - it's a great masculine vibe - but I bet it would look great in girl colors, too! I can totally see this in a college girl's dorm. Thanks for sharing the design!! Whoop whoop!!

Love the colours, and the quilting is perfect for it.
