    Great job -- I'm not surprised you didn't get time to take pictures of the back before it was claimed....

    Well Ruth it isn't surprising he snaffled it in double quick time, that's just the job for a lad!!, I bet that was hard on your hands with all the snipping :D

    Oh I love it - its such a boy quilt.
    Great Job!!

    I love the courdroy Idea for the back too - I love Courdroy so snugglly.
    I have been saving all of my sons worn out jeans and cutting up the usable fabric from them - cute oshkosh pockets and stuff since he was little to make him a jean rag quilt for when he goes away to university or moves from home - I am so going to put coudroy on the back!


    My Dad recently passed away as well and I aksed my mom to send me all of his jeans so I can make a special gift for his 9 grandchildren - so I am learning so many great ideas here too!
    Love it
    Sheila

    In the middle of the quilt is one square that the seams are on the back not the front. I was going to fix it but it would require talkin it apart in several rows, so i am leaving it. Mason hasn't noticed and I didn't till it was completely done lol :oops: :oops: :oops: :wink:

    Yea, the look on Mason's face says, "It's mine and don't think anything else!". How nice that your work is so appreciated (and desired). It is beautiful. Making a rag quilt is on my short list, too!

    Rag quilts can be heavy. Mine is denim. I like to lay it over my feet in the winter because of the weight. We don't need much covering, but I still like the weight. That makes is feel like winter. (Weird, huh)
