    I also made it large enough for the guest room - he already has it off the wall and is using it as I type....wonder if its too big for his reading chair...LOL

    Looks like a manly quilt! He must need it now. Are you in the cold part of the nation?

    I just noticed the black & white has mucsical instruments on it. It is very nice. We're snow-birding in Tucson and its a beautiful day. Oops, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to rub it in. It is cold and snowing back in Kansas now.

    Great job! It is very handsome! My husband keeps watching as I'm hand-quilting his new one! I destroyed two blocks, so I had to scrounge enough similar colors to remake them. He said, why don't you just add a couple of unexpected ones! Well, I found some fabric that would mix in well. Because of his comment, I appliqued 3 butterflies too! He likes it. I'll post a photo when it's done.
