    I posted pics last week of this quilt in progress. I just finished it and also made a pillowcase to put it in. Hope you like the finished product.Name:  P1000973(1).JPG

    Thanks, he only wanted a "touch" of red. I can't wait to give it to him this afternoon.

    This is great for a boy. I am sure he will love it. It seems so full of texture.

    Fabulous quilt, the red is perfect. It would be blah without the red. Or lime green. Someone put that in a quilt this past week's pics and it was great.

    He painted his room grey this summer, and wanted a grey quilt with just "a touch of red". It wasn't easy finding greys that didn't have flowers or feminine swirlies, so went with geometrics. The backing is flannel. The thing weighs a ton, but I am sure it will be warm. I have enough pieces left to make matching valances for his 2 windows.

    I love it! I am a fan of grey and the touch of red always goes nicely with it. Love the pattern too. Congratulations on completing it.

    That is a very masculine quilt. He will treasure it, as it came from you. One lucky guy.

    I have been having trouble posting, so I hope this one goes through.

    I gave DGS the quilt yesterday after school and he LOVED it! He wrapped it around himself and said, "Perfect!" Then he gave me a HUGE hug and a thank you. What can be better than that?!?!?!

    Stunning! Very eye catching and rich looking. Hmmmm....have got to reconsider those colors in my next project.
