    Maybe we should all switch to this scale quilt and stick it to the fabric companies for raising the prices LOL

    Was he featured in a magazine at one time? I read an article that I think I remember correctly about making quilts with small squares (but maybe not as small as your hubby's).

    Magnificent is all I can say. It would be great to have a video of each quilt being assembled & quilted. Give him congrats from NE Alabama.

    he hates to throw away scraps. Plus it was a challenge. I have been trying to post more pics but still get an error message.

    That man has patience. Congrats to him. I hope you guys made a mint on the ones you sold.

    The lady who wrote "The Railway Children" used to do tiny hexagon quilts like these. She did them by hand. Your DH might be interested to have a look at them. I also like his use of positive and negative space in the tonal arrangement of his quilts. Nicely done, thanks for sharing.

    Holy Cow! They are incredible! :shock: Does he use batting in them? With all those seams on the back I'd think you wouldn't need it.

    no batting.

    I am trying to upload more pics but keep getting the error message, they are not very big, 100KB or so. Tried in Firefox and IE, no luck.
