    For almost 2 years now, my DH has been sewing his heart out. and, no ladies, he still will not fill his own bobbin. He has made over 50 tops. All 2 1/2 inch blocks, until now. He just finished this postage stamp quilt out of all his little scraps. We don't waste nothing around here!! Take a look at his masterpiece!! He has already started his second one. What do you think? This is a closeup of the king size top that contains 6,966 pieces.

    This must be a man's equivalent to a woman who likes to fish but won't put bait the hook!
