    No offense but the center square is a deep coral fairy frost. I made it to match a color in a huge watercolor original he hangs in his home.

    I am gonna love showing my brother this thread! He will be so honored you girls enjoy his good looks. LOL!

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    First I love your fabric and color choices. Second, I love the combination of the two blocks together. And third, I love that black polka dot fabric!!! Thanks for sharing.

    I love how you put the pattern together and it looks great! No wonder he wanted it early! I am impressed that you had it done so early.

    You did a great job! The pattern, the fabrics, the colors, the quilting....all make it a stunning quilt! That said, like many others have commented, your brother is a handsome fellow. I know he must love his sister....she does such wonderful things for him.
