This is the first quilt-top  I have made by myself.  I had it quilted with a long-arm machine.  I inherited one of these boy blocks from my grandmother prior to 1968.  I made the others.  I first started this quilt-top about 1993 but did not have it quilted until Summer of 2013.  There are 4 pieces of Bingo print around the center block.  I included the bingo print because my grandson liked to play bingo when he was little.   It fits a queen size bed with ample over-hang.  I made up the design for the diagonal blocks myself.  The entire backing is made from the checkered print that also serves as a horizontal strip between block rows.  The blocks are 11.5" by 13.5" (finished); the border strips between the blocks are 2.5" (finished).  You can add picture-frame borders to your own size depending on how much over-hang you want outside of the pattern blocks.  For a double bed, only use 12 boy blocks (3 to each row).

Thanks, Melody, for giving me a name for the farmer boy:  Overall Sam.  I had no idea what to call him.
