    I'd like to suggest a "Potato Chip Quilt"!! It is a very easy quilt & can be tied if the actual quilting is a problem. For a picture, check under SEARCH for Potato Chip Quilt by winter012. It's the red & blue one. I made one for my dad, who is 96 & he was thrilled with it. It works well with focus fabrics. The reason it's called a potato chip quilt is cause you can't make just one!!!! I'm just finishing my third one!!!! Would be happy to furnish the pattern.

    Can I make a suggestion for a little different layout for Warm wishes? Check out http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-129054-4.htm at the very bottom of the page, in red and black. It is so easy to make - I have made about 4 in this particular layout - and it turns out gorgeous. C9P

    My thoughts as well. Use masculine color fabrics and it should be a bit hit.

    This is pretty or what about the 1600 quilt where you sew end to end a jelly roll pack then I think a black border or something manly to go with it and make it bigger or use a themed fabric for the back.

    I have a turning 20 which you can have the deminsions of if you would like. you can make up to 30 square, with 30 different fat quarters or 15 half yards. I use 9 fabrics for baby quilts, 16 fabrics for lap and up to 25 for shower gifts. There are easy and fun. Let me know... Thanks,

    OK...if you use ONE JELLY ROLL, how big is the quilt.
    If you use TWO Jelly Rolls, how big is the quilt...

    What is the mathemathical way of figuring this up. How long are the strips and about how many strips are in the regular package (I know that there are different numbers offered).

    ANY help would be greatly appreciated.
