Thanks so very much Wanda...glad to hear that you enjoyed everything. I love sharing our familys' story and quilts. I had four boys , only one tried his hand at quilt piecing. He was eleven at the time and I still hold onto and cherish the quilt top that he created. One day I'll actually handquilt it and maybe pass it back to him for his young son who is now 3 years old.

By the way my husband is from a family of all boys. Five brothers, no sisters. Only one of his brothers had a boy....all the rest of the offspring proved to be girls!!!! :):):)
