What a beautiful quilt - this would make a good "boy" quilt - as I have two boys, I always keep my eyes open for those! Fabulous.

This is a sweet little quilt, and I agree with Lynn that it would be perfect for gifting a boy. The tutorial is well done, with clear instructions and perfect photos. Thank you very much. Definitely a keeper! ~karen

When you are giving the dimensions could you please say how big the finish block is. As a beginner I find this very helpful. Thank you
