    I used the pattern from Quiltville. She has the most awesome patterns!

    Anyway, I made this for my dad for Christmas. I used plaid material and cream background. I have learned a lot from this quilt. (1) I do not like triangles (2) I will not use a thick blanket on my frame EVER again. So dont look too closely, you will see horrible puckers! But I finished it and it looks, just okay to me. I know my dad will appreciate it though.

    Thanks for looking!

    did you use fleece for the backing. I love using that on the back of quilts. It makes them all the more snuggly.

    That is a beautiful quilt and the backing looks really snuggly. I know you Dad will love it. Just a suggestion if you use a similar backing again, spray baste it to your top and you wont get any puckers, anyway, I can't see any on this one. Great job.
