This month's hop is all about the guys. Lets face it, we all know that most of our quilty projects, are not "Guy" driven. I'm not saying that we don't all make something for the guys in our lives from time to time,
Carol, bless her heart saw the need to spoil these men a little more,
so here you go guys...It's all about you!
I had some very "guy" like fabrics in my stash, and a book that has always fascinated me. I knew they would be perfect for this project.
This is my "Dapper Guy" quilt.
To finish off my quilt, I chose an "Urban Elementz" pantograph called "City Windows". The simple lines are great for that special "guys" quilt, as well as those modern quilts we love!
Have you ever played with shadows?
Jenny Doan from Missouri Star has a great video tutorial.
It's a very easy way, to really "amp" up the drama in any quilt.
My Crafter's Edge strip dies and the Crossover II machine made cutting those shadows a snap.
These dies do not cut on the ends, just the sides, which leaves you with a nice long "straight" strip to work with.
The Crossover II machine is perfect for cutting these strips.
With the ability to adjust your pressure settings, cutting multiple layers has never been so easy.

I love Crafter's Edge so much, that I just bought 5 new sets of dies.
I can hardly wait to start some new projects with them
What really excites me, other than the are so easy to use, is their "footprint".
I have 54 sets of dies in this space, that is 18" wide. The entire bunch weights less than a couple of pounds, making them so easy to manage and store.
I hope I've enticed you, into playing with shadows.
Please visit my fellow bloggers and see what they have whipped up for the guys today!
