    Very nice setting design for a panel. Hope you took measurements of all of your blocks, because I can see other family members wanting one too!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Great work and design. Not only black borders and then white sashing and all the sizes came out. Lovely quilt.

    Very nicely done. Masculine looking-just right for a man.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    That really is a great quilt...love your color choice - and the way you set the blocks. I'm sure he treasures it.
    Of all the things i've lost, i miss my mind the most.
