Army Quilt

I’m fairly certain I’ve shared with you the quilts I made a few years ago, I just can’t seem to find the post right now.

So anyway, if you didn’t know I made quilts once upon a time, I made 2.  Well, I have material to make my hubby one that’ll be super cute, but I also stole some of his old military uniforms that he doesn’t wear anymore.  He had a few that he wanted to keep intact, otherwise, I got the rest and decided to make him an army quilt.  I don’t have a pattern, I’m just winging it.

In our house, we found a cutting mat so I told him for Christmas I wanted the squares and the running circular knife to cut material with.  Please don’t ask me technical names because I don’t know them.

And then you need material, or in my case, old army uniforms.  A guy I work with did this for his boss to give her brother in law (you know a friend of a friend of a friend of a cousin twice removed. ha!) and I saw the finished product, so I knew I had to make hubby one.

I bought these scissors specifically for cutting material.  But I get teased because the night I brought them home I said, “These scissors are only for cutting.”  Yeah, I haven’t lived that down yet.  {Listen here mister, this is for you, I’m just sayin}

But I love this b/c you use the circular blade, run it around the square and BAM {Thanks Emeril} you have uniform squares which are MUCH easier to sew together.


I’m not very far unfortunately because sometimes time is limited, but I just wanted to show you what I’ve been working on…. I can’t wait to show you the finished product!
