New Quilt to make for my husband

For those that haven't heard, the dog ate my husbands quilt.  I"m doing a mystery that is called "hugs and kisses" which I thought was totally appropriate for a quilt for my honey.  I'm a little concerned that hugs and kisses will be a little to simple of a quilt for my husband.  I'm still going to do it, but just in case I have a back plan!  I made this on the computer while I was travelling for work.  It looks pretty challenging, but I think I may be able to get this done in 2011!  What do you think, am I crazy?  Can I really do it?  It looks nice on the computer!  I think it's definitely manly enough.

  2. Wow!! This is just wonderful! It really does seem to be hard to find manly quilts. Even quilts suitable for boys. This is certainly wonderful! I don't have EQ7, so I have a silly question. When you design with EQ7 does it show you all your pattern pieces you need and everything?

  3. Yes you can either print the template patterns or you can print the foundation paper for each block type. It really is nice. It gives you yardage requirements and everything, just wonderful. I am not affiliated in anyway with EQ, just a very satisfied customer.

  10. Sure you can do it! I always wanted to do a curved flying geese so I printed it out on paper and did it as a paper piecing project. Was very easy. Well at least as compared to doing it some other way.
    To attach a file, from EQ you should click on file and Compress file, then close EQ. Next open your email and click on the paperclip, browse to the project, select it and then send your email as usual. This is for Outlook Express. I'd love a copy of it if you figure out how to do with my sketchy instructions.
