    This is the 13th quilt for this year, 9th quilt since I retired 6-02-10. I wanted to use up some fabrics I cut out in the early 70s, before rotary cutters. I didn't have as many as I thought, would have had more if I hadn't just picked out these. I had to keep adding more fabrics to make it a decent size. I might give it to Hubby's Nephew in law and 2 Sons or maybe not. Picture of the back was too washed out, it is a light blue with a darker blue flowers, like the binding.

    Thanks everyone, I was going to give them to Goodwill several times but, just kept hanging onto them and finally decided this was the year to use them.
    I seem to spend almost as many hours a day sewing as I did working.
