Great idea - looking forward to seeing the progress of this
What a nifty idea. I'm eager to see this come together.
What a fab sister you are! That's SOOO much work, and it's looking great!
Some of the patches are made from the ankles of socks knitted by the same grandfather, who would be tickled pink to know they were getting a second chance.
I love this. Such a cozy quilt. Your brother will be very pleased with this cool gift.
This is just so cool, so meaningful and beautiful. He is going to love it.
How's he liking it? I bet it is super warm and cozy. What a great idea.
Speattle He loved it! It was really very beautiful in person and had a wonderful drape to it.
It is quite beautiful in photos too. Do some of the squares have ties in them? Or is that part of a print?
Speattle The center of each 9 patch block is a piece of family tartan (from a shirt my grandmother made for my grandfather about 45 years ago) and I tied the quilt at the center of all those patches.
Wonderful. I love to see and make tied quilts.
