    Thank you Ruth, the front is cotton and the back is flannel. I purchased 6 yards for the front which allowed me room to match the first strip at 2 1/2 yards and than used 4 inch strips of matching brown around it to complete for a queen size. For the back I purchased 9 yards and had to match the print twice in the 3 strips. I cut a large strip off the back to fit the top. My sisters cat took a liking to the softness of the fabric and I gave her a big hunk to put in her box, since she is the "watch cat" for the quilting shop.

    Your grandson is going to LOVE this quilt. What an awesome memory quilt for him. He is going to love it so much that he is going to have to find another use for the storage bag because he is never going to be storing the quilt. :D
