My Husband and His Quilts and a PRIZE GIVEAWAY

GiveAway Contest information is at the bottom of the article - I just wanted to show off my husbands skills first...

Like OMG I have a husband who can quilt... It's been a while since he's done a square or two but I wanted to share with all my readers some pictures of his old quilts made only 2 years ago. His very first quilt he made was for me and it's a KING SIZE - can you imagine that? NUTS! But he pulled it off.

As I am typing these words a thought occurs "Who taught my husband how to sew" and so I looked at him and asked. And he smiles with a proud statement and says "No One - I taught myself".... And now I want to hide in a hole because I was taught in school and I am no where near my husbands skills.

LOL wow back when Jorge had hair.
But this is proof a king size quilt
can be made in a 24 ft rv..

This is his second quilt he ever did - also a king size quilt.
The colors where not to match
and is done to make it look like a hobo quilt
 - the theme of the this quilt

Jorge did a his and her 9-patch lap quilt and I still use it today
 - this quilt is almost 2 years old

I like the his theme better then the she theme 9-patch quilt. He was saying yesterday he's getting the itch to make one but wants to sell them but to be honest storage is a problem. But if a reader see this and wants one he'd be happy to do a custom order for sure - make and ship is what we can do...
His email is
for quotes and information.
