    We FINALLY have a few shots of these cute men with their quilts, some made by the members of this board.
    Remember, my internet access is very slow, it'll take forever to upload these dozen or so. I'll try to give you details as I post, too.

    Look at their adorable faces! Aren't they just babies?!

    Not sure how I feel about this man; is he sad, calm, just posing, depressed? Worrisome.
