    A Scrappy Magic Square for our son in Virginia

    I spent a weekend separating my scraps into three piles - manly, womanly and child-like. I made this scrappy quilt for our son Terry in VA. He is a mountain of a man, like his Daddy and I wanted to make a throw that would be sutable for him. It used up all the manly scraps with a few strips from my extra binding stash.

    I love scrappies! I like how you off-set the busy center with your triple border. I'm sure your son will love it. Thanks for sharing.

    Wonderful. Now we need a picture of Terry in his new quilt! I am sure it will keep him warm for a lifetime.

    wow that is a fantastic quilt. believe me sometimes those manly quilts can be rough to come with good ideas
    [I've got 4 sons of my own.] without using plaid flannels.
    your quilt is fantastic.

    Have a great day and happy sewing !

    Great looking quilt. I never used to care for scrappies but seeing what everybody here can do with them is inspiring me. I may have to start using up my scraps.
