    Finally I'm feeling brave enough to post some pictures of my quilts.

    The 1st one is the first quilt I ever made. I call it "all the men in my life" because it is made with flannel shirst of my Dad, Hubby, Brothers and both Grandpas.

    The 2nd one is the one I made for a Christmas present for my nephew Corey.

    I call it Redneck 4-patch

    Nice work on both! It's neat that you could use all the men's shirts for the first one!

    Thanks for all your kind words.

    The GFG quilt was the 1st quilt I made. I picked the design because I didn't have a sewing machine yet and the hand sewing looked easy. I hand quilted it and it won 1st place at the fair this year.

    My nephews quilt is tied. I decided that I wan't going to put all my time in quilting it because it's just going to end up in a tangled lump at the foot of the bed anyway. LOL My nephew never makes his bed.

    I like all your "plaids". Wish I had thought of that with all my Dad's soft shirts before he died and I gave them away.
