    Mary, This is really nice don in homespun. Think I like this one better than any of the turning twenty I've seen. I'll have to retink making one of these, and I just passed up getting a turning twenty pattern.

    I think you did a great job matching the appropriate quilt fabrics and pattern to the recipient. I'm sure he will have happy dreams.

    I love the Turning Twenty pattern! I'm making one for a nephew.

    What a beautiful gift. This is the nicest TT I've seen.

    Did you wash the homespuns first? I don't usually wash fabrics, but have started collecting homespuns and am leery of using them as is; the weave is so much looser.

    Thank you for sharing your work.
