Modern Man

A while back I made some blocks with green,black,and grey. Most of the fabrics reminded me of manly fabric (no flowers). 
 I made each square a different size and then framed them alternating with grey or black.
 I went for a straight solid binding this time and think it worked out great with the modern look I was going for. 
I am also getting ready for a boutique next week and have been making lots of things to get ready. These coasters are just a sample of what I have made. I put them in sets of four and tied them up with bakers twine. I will be linking up again over at crazymomquilts.

Love the quilt! I'm always looking for a manlier quilt so I can make things for my nephews and this is perfect!

The black and green are very striking together. It's beautiful.

I was totally thinking about making coasters as Christmas gifts this year - smar-t pants.
