    This is a Henry Glass pattern, minus the appliqued flower border. I started it a couple of years ago to use up my Thimbleberry scraps. Early this year I realized it was a good "guy" quilt so I finished it for my stepson. The batting is the recycled green made out of plastic bottles. I put flannel on the back because he is a lineman and works out in all that nasty cold weather.

    Wonderful! I love the sparks of bright blue in the "logs". He'll love it.

    Very nice. I love the colors. Still too light for my DH though..he works with metal wire everyday and comes home with grease on his hands and clothes so everything in my house is dark LOL

    It is light green color, made of recycled plastic bottles. My guild members say it washes well, and it quilted well. I used spray basting also with it.
