    Beautiful Guy quilt, I didn't see any mistakes and don't think he will either. Beautiful quilting also.

    What a great quilt for a guy... I wouldn't have thought of these colors (but then I am a brights kinda girl) but I do love these. Another thing I love about this board: it shows us patterns/colors/combinations that we wouldn't necessarily think we like. And boy do we find we are wrong!

    The question is, does your brother approve.
    It's a gorgeous quilt and very manly. And as for the mistakes, no one will know if you don't tell them. I can't see any.

    You did a wonderful job. This is a very cozy and comfy looking quilt. A nice man quilt! DSILs quilting finishes it off perfectly. I like the idea of using a great shade of gray for the backing. A color that not a lot of people use today. May be the color is a shade of blue? It is a very nice grey on my screen And I like it!

    It's a grey backing. I was looking for more of slate blue/grey but couldn't find one. But I until yesterday, I had to drive 40 miles to the next town to get fabric. Yesterday a little fabric store opened here. I've been really good so far and haven't stopped in, but I will before the week is out. I have to drive by it everytime I go into town.

    I head to Shreveport Saturday to deliver the quilt. Lots of fabric places there... :-)
