    I finished this one for DH brother and sis-in law. It is TV size (a little smaller than a twin) and backed with flannel. It picks up lint and I used fabric softner-they have a dog-hope with another washing it will be better.

    It is my number 4. I have #5 in the planning to be finished by the time my mom comes home from the hospital. 1 week-the race is on!

    Oh! I like that. What a great use for scraps. I need to try something like that and clean out my scrap box. Nice job!

    That is really nice!! Love the plaids. Did you use up scraps or did you have to go out & buy to get your nice selection? I think it's great!

    That is *wonderful*!! I love the way you used a controlled scrappy-ness to make such a fantastic pattern. Would you mind terribly if I "steal" your style?

    For this one I bought the plaids and used the "controlled" scrap look.

    I made mine with the plaids all scrapy and it has smaller squares and a larger border. I like it but I thought the in-laws would like the "organized" look better.

    They opened it this afternoon and LOVE it. I found this version on line and mine is from a book at our local library. Mine is posted:

    It is fun to make! Post pictures if you make one. I would love to see your version too!

    What great work you do! Did you quilt them yourself? If you did, you are miles ahead of me!

    Nice job on #3 and #4. Can't wait to see #5!

    Thanks everyone! Glad you like it. :lol:
    Yes, I quilt them myself. I have a Grace Frame that I used with my Bernina 830. Mother in Laws old machine and it worked well. DH (and Santa) bought me a Juki to use with my frame and I will be trying that out on #5. :D I find running the machine top speed and racing back and forth to be VERY FUN! I do a free motion. Tried following a pattern but will need to practice on that!

    Quilt # 4 is from a book at the library-The pattern was called "Sunshine and Shadows". It is a veriation of an Amish pattern. It is also called "Roman Stripes".

    For #5 I Googled it and found this version. The squares are a little larger and it made up large enough that I didn't need to put so much border around it. That made it go together pretty quickly.

    I would love to see yours, Grandma Pam! And anyone's, if you try it! :lol:
