    My kid's babysitter was cleaning out her grandmother's house and called me to say she found a bunch of fabric. Did I want it or should she take it to goodwill? Heck yeah I want it!! Amongst the yardage of some really nice flannel and denim, I found this.

    It is awesome in size, scope, and enthusiasm. I'd like to have a moment of silence for all the many pairs of bellbottoms that made the ultimate sacrifice for the sake of this project.

    The polyester is so thick, I don't think I should even try batting. I think I should put a back on it and quilt it, and then donate it to someplace really really cold. It'll be too thick for Texas weather by far!

    Is it double knit? It is probably a museum piece.
