    That's very nice. It looks like a *guy* quilt. I'm sure he'll love it.

    I have a son who would like your quilt! No, won't be making it for him. Just cut one out for him that is called String Theory and it is all columns of flying geese. I will keep your idea for another time. Great pattern. I can see it in greens or pinks or turquoise too.

    Just found the pattern by MSQ. Your colors make the difference between stunning and simple and colorful and busy. Wondering if you used a layer cake or cut from yardage?

    Very nice masculine quilt. Your color choices are great. Because of the placement of the colors, I see some real interesting illusion overall that would not be there if every square had the colors placed the same way. Very effective for visual interest.

    Great choice of fabrics for a grandson’s quilt...it is definitely one that he can grow old with. Nice job!
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Nice. I like the colors and placement. I may have to put this on my to do list but I will need to be mindful of the colors I used. I like the way yours looks.

    Great minimalist/ abstract quilt. Since gray is the big color in design among millenials, I bet your grandson will display it on his bed for a long time to come.

    2 layer cakes. Moda Catnip and Stonehenge Gradations Graphite tiles. I added the gold and gray with circles from yardage to add different geometry. Granite gold and black for the borders with a small stripe for the binding.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.

    Very nice quilt and one that a male would enjoy although I'm sure many females would be very happy to receive it.
