This quilt is for a guy so the quilting pattern needed to be masculine. Most quilting designs are swirly and girly, so this geometric overall pattern seemed to fit the bill. Hey, maybe his name is Bill? Well Tish who made this wonderful quilt should be proud of herself. It is really nice and manly and any guy would be proud to have it. It is quilted with a color of thread called “Mallard,” so that seems appropriate, eh?
