  100. Congrats for being published - again! I adore the block. It's perfect for all folks. I'm always on the lookout for my grandboys and this in perfect, perfect, perfect, perfect. I find it difficult to find things for them. I bought a cross stitch owl pattern and it even had pink in it and that doesn't fly with my daughter. So, I'm having to change the colors in it. That's what one of the great things about crafting - you can change things to suit your or your recipient's tastes. Thank you for a delightful pattern. I think I know at least two, maybe three little boys who may have new quilts soon.
