    I got this panel from a QB member. Got the fabric to go with it and 11 yr old grandson (who want's to learn to sew) and I got his top done. It's a twin size and he wanted a couple of pillowcases to go with it. He really likes the way it turned out, so do I. It was fun. He got pretty good with his 1/4" seams and a straight line. LOL Of course he didn't know who Roy Rogers was, so I had ordered a DVD of his movies off Amazon, so we watched some of those. He was impressed with Trigger.. And Roy too. I even enjoyed them, brought back good memories of days gone by..Thanks for looking.. Oh my grandson is Brett..

    I grew up down the street from Roy Rogers & Dale Evans house in Chatsworth, CA...All of the streets in the immediate area were named after him in some way. There was Trigger Hill, where everyone used to hang out and party...Dale Court, etc. After the house was sold, my DH used to play in there with the new occupants kids.

    How fun to have a young man enjoying the world of quilting! He will never forget his Roy Rogers quilt! It will probably go off to college with him! And the time you've spent together is priceless!

    Thanks everyone for looking and your great comments. I am going Thurs to my friends to longarm his quilt. He is a special boy and my only grandson. He loves to cook also, so he might just make someone a great husband one day, hope Nanny lives to see it.
