    This is my first time posting and I just thought I would share with you the quilt I made for my husband. We went to Las Vegas and drove route 66 to the grand canyon, we stopped in a small town and we went into a quilt store and he bought me 9 yards of route 66 fabric, said he wanted a quilt. I used two of the three different fabric and had to order more of the blue fabric to be able to finish his quilt. Now he wants me to make him one that is flat..go figure.

    Great job! I've only made a very small biscuit quilt & it's very time consuming, tell him he's so special he got the deluxe model first.

    Did you use those plastic clips to hold the puffs?

    no I don't know anything about the plastic clips. I sewed each puff together by hand. Very time consuming, but happy with results.
