    A Scrappy Magic Square for our son in Virginia

    I spent a weekend separating my scraps into three piles - manly, womanly and child-like. I made this scrappy quilt for our son Terry in VA. He is a mountain of a man, like his Daddy and I wanted to make a throw that would be sutable for him. It used up all the manly scraps with a few strips from my extra binding stash.

    I love scrappies! I like how you off-set the busy center with your triple border. I'm sure your son will love it. Thanks for sharing.
