    What did you back it with? Did you use batting, or is it just a front and a back?

    I used a blue plaid fabric I found in the $1/yard rack at Wal-Mart. I used a low loft batting...yet, for some reason, it didn't make the quilt super heavy like everyone here had said it would.

    LoL. I did miss a few points, but they're off by a couple of millimeters so you can't even notice unless you're really looking. I was real careful in making sure everything lined up.

    Well, if I could get my pictures onto Photobucket I could show you what I had in mind for another quilt.

    But I wanted some weight to it, but I didn't want it to be so heavy that it'd be too uncomfortable to sleep under. It feels too light to me...it feels almost as light as the flannel tie quilt I have on my bed.

    FVG, my son had his first guitar lesson today and a girl in his group had a cool guitar which I learned was a flying V.

    Is that you in your avatar? When I first saw it I thought it might be your favorite rock band (well if your in it, it probably is anyway)

    Love it! It looks so soft & comfy. Did you buy your denim or salvage it from used jeans? I've been saving denim from jeans to make a quilt but have a long way to go to have enough for a quilt of any size. Your quilt is inspiring!

    What a terrific looking quilt!! You are photogenic, that's a great picture of you. The quilt almost makes me want to go look for more denim, ALMOST! :lol: I have enough going on for now.

    Did you use regular denim jeans to make the patches? There are many different weights in denim so that may be why your quilt is lighter in weight. We had one when I was a kid that would hold you in the bed once you drew it up over you. I never had to worry about falling out of bed for sure! :lol:

    Beautiful work, girlfriend!!

    Well, I for one, think you are gorgeous!! Thank you for putting your picture up. I love to see who I am talking to. It makes it so much easier to relate. I have a bunch of denim. Now I need the energy.

    WOW :!: :!: :!: :!: You really did a good job :!: Give yourself a great big pat on the bck from all of us and a high five too. It looks so warm, but I think i"ll wait a while for you to send it. Its 102 right now in North Carolina. But next time I go to the moutains, I will take it and proudly put it on the bed up there :!: :lol: Super job! I didn't pay attention in English in school and am running out of adjectives. Good picture too. Lots of us aren't happey with the way we look, but other people are! You look very pretty to me!
