I used a blanket for batting on this one.
DON'T do it.
Many of you advised me to make a denim quilt
when I blogged about my son's special request.
I thought about backing this with denim...
but my son said that didn't sound cozy enough! ;)
I thought it was a GREAT idea!!!!
I already had the quilt top ready to go...
I DEFINITELY would have made it DENIM!
I quilted this very SPARINGLY!!!
It wasn't EASY!!!
Don't DO IT!!!
I hope to never do it again.
The DEED is DONE...
and I can move on!
And guess what???
It IS heavy!!!!
At least it WORKED, huh?
Oh! the things we do for our CHILDREN!
My husband and big kids were all gone for the last few days
so I got a LOT of quilting in!!!
The two younger ones, who WERE home, don't mind simple meals.
So I did a little cooking.....
if you call SPAGETTIOS cooking!!!
These quilts were also quilted up...
and didn't tax my muscles as much as that heavy thing did!!!
They're quilted and bound...
READY to go!!!
Here are the backs using mostly donated fabrics!
Thank you so much!
I will be giving them away this week!
Thank you to ALL of you who helped out with these!
Group projects are ALWAYS so much fun!!!
Just got a GREAT big BEAR hug
from my TALL 18 year old
for making him that BIG ol' heavy quilt!!!
I'm Smiling now.
