    This is a pic of the quilt thatI requested help with picking a suitable batting for warmth. I used a nice quality flannel on the back and a cotton batting. The quilt is for my grandson who likes Star Wars. it is warm. Thank for the tips, it would have been a less than warm quilt otherwise!

    Thank you. I took the easy way out setting alternate solid squares instead of pieced ones but hoped to finish it before winter ended. At my age, I'm starting to look for less challenges!

    That is beautiful. I love blue. With a wonderful flannel backing and batting it will keep him warm. Great job.

    Your grandson must be delighted with his warm quilt. Nice of his grandma to make it for him. :-)

    That is beautiful! And I like the plain squares - it's a design choice you made there not 'an easy way out' and don't let anyone tell you otherwise! LOL
