    These are my latest quilts for injured UK soldiers! I was given a bag of 6"squares cut from mens shirts. I have now made 5 quilts from those squares!! It was fun finding different designs! Most were found on this board so thanks to everyone!!

    Nice job! These are very manly looking quilts. But then, not all soldiers are men these days are they. :wink:

    "Beautiful" and "Fantastic" job .... "Love Your Quilts"! I especially like the "masculine" look and colors of your work. Sometimes it is hard to come up with that look and your cause is "Awesome".

    Wow, those quilts are really impressive looking. I love the dark boarders and sashing with the bright colors!

    This is wonderful. The soldiers are going to love these!

    I bet a bunch of quilters would like to make this pattern. I made a couple for kids quilts for Project Linus and they went together quickly and really showed off the novelty fabrics well.

    Here is a tutorial with photos of the Disappearing Fourpatch>>

    and here is another one from the boards>> http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-55564-1.htm
