    I posted info about my trip to visit my brother - and before I went, I decided to whip up a quilt for him and figured I should do one for my sil also - or be in trouble! lol :mrgreen: Did not get a pic of hers, but very similar. I tried to find fabrics that had to do with things my brother did over his 75 years of life, such as fishing, etc. He loves cats, so had a couple of cat fabs and he was a paratrooper so had some airplane fab and I managed to find some kid fab that had people with chutes - he loved that the best!! Go figure - he never has grown up!

    This is a closeup of the quilt.

    What a great quilt! The second picture shows that your brother must think the same thing! You just whipped that together, huh?

    I like the colors, also like the smaller 4 patches, then a larger block. Hope you used rag scissor clipper things.
