    I finishd the quilt top for my 9 year old grandson. He picked out the pattern, approved all the blue fabrics... blue has always been his favorite color.. I called it beach birds because there are two different bird blocks in it... Birds in the Air, and flying geese. I also made it while snowbirding at the beach. It's gone to the longarmers... and I'll have it back in a few weeks.

    That is beautiful. Blue is one of my favorite colors. I probably have enough blue in my stash to make at least 2-3 quilts. Your design is very nice. Your grandson will love it.

    That 9 year old grandson is one lucky boy.
    The colors are great and such a lively blue.
    I love the pattern.
    I hope that you have a label on the back for
    the years that he will treasure this.
