Thought I would share this with you all. I thought I would put together a "small, quick" quilt to raffle off at my son's school for the holiday. Knowing that teenagers would be using this I wanted to use terry cloth for the backing to make it soft and durable. I certainly wasn't thinking about how much weight it would add. This "small, quick" quilt is 65 inches square and weighs almost 6 pounds. I broke 8 needles in the process. Lesson learned. Thank you for allowing me to share. Happy Quilting Everyone .
