It was three years in the making, but Max’s community baby quilt is finally finished!
Max is a very busy guy. He likes to climb on top of rocks.
The next year, I pieced the quilt together.
And finally this year, I quilted and bound it.
Max’s mom calls it is Max’s Man Quilt because in the history of McCarthy community baby quilts, this one has the most quilt blocks made by men.
And not just any men, the manliest men in town really. Here are all the quilt blocks made by men. The firemen, fishermen, and EMT’s are well represented in Max’s quilt.
Of course there were blocks made by ladies.
And kids too.
I used an assortment of bits to fill in the areas around the blocks.
The last few community quilts I’ve made have the child’s name spelled out. I like this.
I call this style of quilting “light custom”. I use the same thread throughout. I try to not be to obsessive with the quilting and just have fun.
