    Amazing... he is too cool! I live in Mississippi and I don't know any men who quilt. I do hand quilt at the state fair sometimes (they have a quilt set up for volunteers to work on) and there are always older men stopping to tell me they learned to quilt when they were young, with a mother or grandmother.

    WOW! It is so very pretty. Love the bright colors and can't wait to show my husband. He is facinated by quilts men make, even though he doesn't quilt himself ( I think he would if he didn't spend every spare moment he has woodcarving). Please tell your uncle I love his quilt and hope he keeps quilting.

    Was this from a pattern? If so, what is the name and the company?
