    I did the log cabin blocks but the others are from a B & W block swap from another board. I just got this back from the quilter today and I need to add the binding then I will give it to my co -workers 12 yr old daughter, they lost their house in a fire a month ago and there were several gifts for her little sister from people at work but no so much for Megan so I decided to finish this and give to Megan.

    She will love it because its "cool" and at 12 being cool is what its all about. I think its beautiful and thank you for helping them out get a new start. Its not easy starting over. Every kind gesture counts.

    Very attractive arrangement...yes, it is waaaaay cool enough for a 12 year old...hey, I'm not anywhere near 12 and I love it. Very nice of you to notice that this girl needed something special...she'll remember your caring whenever kindness is discussed....quilts are soft but they make deep impressions!

    I also "borrowed" the layout of the quilt from the other board

    it looks great - using the two different types of log cabins makes it look totally different....

    I love the spare use of the colors. They really pop out.

    What a great gift for Megan! I am sure she is going to treasure it. It will bring her some comfort after such a horrible situation.

    This is very, very, cool....Lucky Megan. The sparing use of the accent colours is just perfect. This is a total triumph!
