    Love it! This looks like one of those cozy kind of quilts you want to snuggle under. Are you going to tie it or quilt it?

    Gray was a good choice. i have made may quilts similar to those. One year I made several for Christams that had either red or green solid and alternated with Christmas fabrics. Nice job!

    Very nice piecing .... all those edges seem to perfectly match.
    Will be posting a similar project I just machine quilted, to give you an idea
    of how to finish it. Look in "pictures" by Quiltqtrs.

    Nice arrangements. I'm surprised a little one would choose 'gray" instead of a bright color. :-)

    The gray is fine. I like gray. As caliquocat said, it does seem an unusual for a youngster to choose, but it works just fine! Nice work!

    Your grandson has a good eye for color. The gray goes so well with all the other squares.
