So, this is an old project, but I never posted it here  Huh .  It's a modified nine patch pattern and I made it for my fiance a year ago.  He still sleeps with it every night.  I don't have a great picture of the full quilt, but you get the idea.  It's called the boxer short quilt because of the fabrics.  I wanted it to be a "man quilt" and it kind of ended up looking like a bunch of boxers pieced together.

Lol! When I read the title I thought you had made a quilt from boxer shorts! That would be a funny conversation at night as you snuggle up! hehe

Great sturdy work though, and wonderful colours for a man quilt. Boxer-ish or no! ;o)

I was trolling for gift ideas for my boyfriend and this made me smile.  Well done!

haha, this is a very nice quilt. of course, when I saw the topic, I imagined a quilt that was made of boxers cut in half so you still had the shapes all sewn on, still looking like boxers.

I like the quilted star detail!
