Manly-looking quilt, in progress


I’m trying to to make a manly-looking quilt.  Which is really hard for me, it turns out, since I want to put pink in everything.  This is an effort to stick to a strict color scheme (what?? What’s a color scheme?) even though I failed at that already, and an attempt to make the least “crafty-looking” quilt I can make.   But when a crafty person’s teenage son asks for a quilt he can take with him to college, a crafty person does her best to acquiesce, and to make something as non-flowery as possible.  I can do this.  My official position is that those are branches in the ochre squares.  Yup.
