    Hi everybody! I made my granddaughter a rag quilt so I made my grandson a Jacob's Ladder throw that was 60" x 84".
    Next came my daughter and her husband. They both got 60" x 84" Jacob's Ladders too. Now I have one of my daughters families fixed up with their own throws. One more daughter and family to do. 5 more throws to make. I love quilting!!!! :-P

    This batting is so fluffy when you use it as you can tell in the quilt. I'll call the quilt store tomorrow and find out the brand, type it is for sure. All I know is that it's a 4 oz. batting.

    The three quilts are great. Love the raggy quilt - one of my next projects. The other two have wonderful choices of fabric colors. Great job.

    I love all of your quilts. Great job. You sound like me. I have made quilts for all 11 of my gk and for my 4 kids and their spouses. They love for me to make them quilts.

    Hi everybody! I called the quilt store and the batting I used is just a 4 oz. polyester. They said that Hobb's sells a 3.3 oz., 4 oz., 6, 8, and 10 oz. It really makes a nice 'fluffy' quilt.

    Yes, it really is simple. I can help you to make it. I've helped alot of other people by email. It's just 4 Patches and Triangle-Square Units. I'm not familiar with all the terms of quilting yet and half to go get my quilting book and look up everything so I can say what things are. :lol: But that doesn't stop me!!!
    You can sew the Triange-Sq. units before you cut them too, so you don't have to sew on the bias. I've already sent you my email address so just email me if you need help.
