What are you most proud of? Thinking a bit out side the box. The book called for using all solids and also had you cut the fabric down to a smaller size. Instead I left the pieces as long as I could and made it into a quilt that fits a full size bed, which happens to be the largest quilt I have ever made.

What a great gift for your grandfather in law. A traditional gift, but with a modern twist. I am sure he loved it. I know I am really digging it!

Okay, I just read your blog. That was a wonderful, touching story. I like to give quilts as gifts as well, and it really is a good feeling to match the quilt to the person. This story made me smile. Thanks for sharing.

Nice! I'm looking for some inspiration for a quilt for my son using Parson Gray's fabrics. This is a great inspiration!

I really like how this quilt turned out. It was just masculine enough and it was pretty quick to put together. There are some other great patterns in that book, that could also fit that description. I just really like the simple lines of this pattern.
