    My DH asked me to make a quilt for one of his friends who felt slighted when his brother got a fleece blanket as a gift and he didn't. So.....I had a couple bolts of John Deere fleece and decided I would just cut til I ran out. The blocks are 8-1/2" square and I ended up with nearly 200 of them so each side is 100 blocks. I had to throw in some contrasting blocks and this is what I came up with. Sure glad it's done. Whew!! These are all Christmas prints but my DH is giving it to him in May.

    And men say they don't care about quilts(most men). So cute that he felt slighted. You have done a wonderful thing, his feelings have been saved.

    Tetris inspiration

    I made one with squares 4" x4". Any size to suit your quilt, it's just the visual proportion that you have to consider. Mine was a throw more than a quilt.
