    So this fabric called to me at Walmart. And at $2.50/yard you can't go wrong! I only bought about two yards of each so not enough to really make anything big. I didn't want to fuss with a pattern, so I just went with the old stand by! lol

    Somehow in finishing it, the top came out a little wrinkly between ties, and the back is all weird, but you know what? It's mine and I don't have to be perfect! lol It's just cozy and will keep me warm. The back is material I had in my stash. I didn't have enough of anything that would co-ordinate, so I went with ladybugs...strange, but oh well.

    What do you think?

    I second that comment! I have every intention of making a quilt to stay here with me but thus far that hasn't happened.

    I like your quilt and I like another posters idea of one side for spring and the other for summer. Very cute!

    I'm new at this, and so far all I have are 'wonky' squares :shock: I really like your choice of material. Loving the lavender! I wish our Walmart still had fabric.

    Good job!

    I think it's wonderful. There is nothing better than sleeping under something you made. I love the quilts on my bed.
