    Made my Dad a barn quilt

    I made my dad a barn quilt for Christmas. Except where I come from, it's called a shed. So, I made my dad a shed quilt for Christmas that is 6' x 6' ... Had to rent a Uhaul trailer to get it to western Kansas from Texas. Anyway, he LOVED it!

    Wise words from my 7 year old niece: "Aunt Laura, you must think you can't have too much fabric like a pizza can't have too much cheese." Well said, Gracie!

    What is it made of?
    Since I gain weight reading cookbooks, why can't I lose weight watching a fitness program?

    I also want to know what it's made of to prevent fading & sun damage. How big is it & what did you construct it with. It's a great idea & looks fabulous on his shed!
