    I finished this one for DH brother and sis-in law. It is TV size (a little smaller than a twin) and backed with flannel. It picks up lint and I used fabric softner-they have a dog-hope with another washing it will be better.

    It is my number 4. I have #5 in the planning to be finished by the time my mom comes home from the hospital. 1 week-the race is on!

    Oh! I like that. What a great use for scraps. I need to try something like that and clean out my scrap box. Nice job!

    That is really nice!! Love the plaids. Did you use up scraps or did you have to go out & buy to get your nice selection? I think it's great!

    That is *wonderful*!! I love the way you used a controlled scrappy-ness to make such a fantastic pattern. Would you mind terribly if I "steal" your style?

    For this one I bought the plaids and used the "controlled" scrap look.

    I made mine with the plaids all scrapy and it has smaller squares and a larger border. I like it but I thought the in-laws would like the "organized" look better.

    They opened it this afternoon and LOVE it. I found this version on line and mine is from a book at our local library. Mine is posted:

    It is fun to make! Post pictures if you make one. I would love to see your version too!
