    Good-looking scrappy quilt. That's another item on my to-do list.

    What size blocks are they? Are you sewing them to a backing?

    Your string/scrappy quilt is great. I am sure he will love it when he gets it, for now and all the future blizzards and no power. Will you do the back in flannel or cotton?

    Hopefully his power is back on...I have been amazed on how many were still out on Friday at work . We rec'd our power back on Wednesday night. Thankfully we did have a generator. it has been crazy the last few years! You GS will love it...it looks wonderful and I am sure it will keep him warm all winter long.

    Like your quilt. This is my favorite "I don't really have to think about it" block--I often make them when I want to watch TV and sew at the same time! I do mine on light weight muslin foundations.

    Smile old pickles in wash state

    Love your scrappy quilt. I am pretty darn old and like to do fun stuff, not complicated just fun.
    I started following this board 2 years ago when I got the idea to start sewing. Learned so much from all of you, I am doing a pretty good job now. So many ideas and lessons.
    Thanks from oldpickles
    Now I have to find out how to send this message to you.

    Great job. I have been told there is never an ugly scrap quilt as there are so many colors that the eye doesn't pick out one thing and say it isn't the right color.

    The darks do keep it looking like a "manly" quilt. I like it. Should be warm and cozy for the winter nights to come.

    I love it!!! Makes me want to get back working on mine but I'll have to wait till I get my DD quilt done. She's getting married on Dec. 3rd.

    What a shame he is still without power! Great that he has a grandma like you to make him a neat quilt.
