I made this quilt (my third completed quilt) for my big brother as a 30th birthday / housewarming gift.  He described his favorite colors to me as "blue and/or Dallas Cowboy's colors."  So naturally, blue and gray came to mind.  This was done 100% by hand so it took me about 3 months.  It was intended to be a Christmas gift but ended up being a late birthday gift (his birthday is in January).  I like to call it a stacked stone pattern.  If I make another with a similar pattern, I will make much thicker layers because all the stitching took forever!

I love how modern and clean this looks.  It's a perfect 'guy's quilt.'  Smiley

Ooooh, I love that!  I want to make a manly quilt for my boyfriend, and that convinces me that it really can be done.
