Me: We're going on holiday in about 3 weeks, do you need any new clothes like shirts? (which can be roughly translated as "We're going on holiday in 3 weeks, you need to buy some new shirts").
Mr F: OK I'll think about it.
All quiet on the shirt front until last Monday at about 10 pm, when Mr F comes out of his study and proudly announces: I've ordered some new shirts.
Me: Do you think they'll be delivered in time, considering we're going on Friday? (rough translation: It's too late, they won't arrive by Thursday)
Mr F: Hmm.
So today I went out and bought him some new shirts!
So on to the quilts part of the title.
Edited 24 April: Thanks so much everyone, I now have enough people who volunteered to test this pattern for me.
I've called it Tubix because it looks like square tubes and sort of reminds me of the Rubix Cube.
