    Whew! There are 168 blocks in this. !2 blocks by 14 blocks. I have been working on it for about a month (I usually work on 2 or 3 things at a time). all I have to do is get some flannel for a 3 inch border and backing. I think i might just get some plain cotton backing fabric for this one.

    I didn't take the pillows off my bed so it isn't laying flat.

    My hubby picked out the pattern and helped pick out the fabric. he also helped layout a lot of the blocks, too. I am getting a tin lizzie in about 3 or 4 weeks so I will wait a while before I put it all together.

    Thanks for looking.

    IMHO- I would back it with a nice flannel sheet in a brown tone (second hand store maybe?). It would make it super cuddly. IMHO

    With the top being nice and cozy flannel, I would back it with flannel also. The quilt itself is fabulous!

    I used 20 fat quarters in case anyone wants an idea of yardage.
    I used Creekside by Moda and Woolies by Marcus (I think it was Marcus but I know they were called Woolies. )
    This is the biggest I have made. Not very fun ironing all those rows. Lol.

    Very warm and nice. I admire quilts with checks and plaids just don't seem to be able to mix them well myself.
