Mr. B should be very proud of his creation -- and his grandsons!
How nice to have a quit of many colors. I inherited (through a few other relatives first, I think) a string quit my own grandmother had made, long before I was born. As all quits seem to have that wonderful weight to them, this one also had no filler so it wasn't too warm to use all year long. I used it for years in various purposes, but best of all, I loved to take a nap on top of the made bed by pulling that old quit over me. Sadly, it finally gave up the ghost when our children were still at home. I miss it and my grandma, who made it. I hope you and your boys get as much joy out of this amazing Technicolor quilt as I did mine.
