Years and years ago (eight, I think), I made my husband a pair of boxers from a blue fabric with red chili peppers all over it. He really liked them! Sadly, time marches on, and those boxers desperately needed to be retired. So when I saw this fabric in the thrift store, I jumped at it! These became his birthday gift, though a little late....oops! I didn't make any changes - this is my TNT pattern for him. But I do really like how they turned out.
And the thought is that I've seen patterns for quilted wallhangings that are designed to look like boxers in the blocks. I think it would be fun to make one, using pieces of retired boxers to make the boxers in the blocks! I'm currently thinking about this one, which is for sale, or the free Laundry Time pattern. It won't get anytime soon, anyway, so for now I'll just think about it, and hang onto the "retired" boxers.
