has anyone ever made a quilt with two tops? or reversible? I was going to make my MIL a log cabin quilt and chose browns and blues for the top, then showed her the pattern and colors. She thinks that is will be pretty, but thought she might get bored if she only has one side of the quilt showing all of the time. Help any suggestions?

Tell her to purchase her dream comforter at Bed, Bath and Beyond. This was my DH suggestion.

I've seen them, but never been brave enough to try to make one. They are beautiful.

Her "other" DIL, bought her one, top of the line (i.e. very expensive department store) knowing the colors of her house even, it doesn't match her carpet/wall colors, and it's bright maroon, not her fav. color. It's one of those big fluffy heavy "comforters" (least that's what I call it). Which she finds difficult to pull up, doesn't want to have it on in the summer (it was 92 two days ago), and wants something warm but not so thick and heavy to pull with her crooked hands and fingers. So I offered to make her a quilt for her BD, now she is getting "picky".

I have made one. One side has the same colors as yours and the other side I did in batiks. They are easy and fun to do. Sorry, it got scooped up as soon as I made it so don't have a picture on hand.

LOL, when there are so many selections, it gets hard. I am still laughing about my LAST post. My DH is always telling me that if I need a new blanket to go buy one. Suddenly he is beginnig to see the light!

Many backing fabrics are very attractive. In fact, I like the backing on the quilt on my bed better than the front.

I made a reversible turning twenty quilt. I did a quilt as you go and used fleece for batting. Probably broke all the cardinal rules for quilting, but it was something I wanted to try to see if I could do it. I figured if whoever ends up with it, doesn't like one side they can always flip it over..
