    I made this quilt last winter from a BOM on the web. Unfortunately they quit submitting blocks with only one to go and no instructions for putting it together. Asked a friend and she helped me decide the final layout, even though I had to add two more rows. Asked my son if he would want it and he said "YES, it would make a great couch throw for he and his girlfriend". So I finished it. The back is flannel and quilted at the LQS.

    Back with quilting.

    Beautiful. WOW and you finished without instructions. Great job!!! How frustrating that must have been for you. It turned out great.

    A big thumbs up to you, for finishing without any instructions, it could so easily have been left and that would have been a real shame, as it has turned out lovely!!

    :D :D :thumbup: :thumbup: :D :D

    babeegirl, Yes. It was very easy. Had Home Depot cut the wood for me. Drilled holes in it where I wanted the buttons (two holes for each). Covered it with 1/2 inch foam, batting, then the fabric. Covered the buttons and used fishing line to tie them in the back.

    That is so beautiful. I think you are going to have trouble giving it to your DS. Someone else wants it by the looks of it.
