    I cut out the pieces about 2 weeks ago and I finally had the time to put the pieces together for the finished product. Turned out nice.
    I hand quilted the rows from side to side and around the perimeter of the the quilt. [​IMG]
    It's not that heavy but you will stay warm. I put one layer of batting between the top and the back for extra warmth.

    The squares I sewed ended up finishing out at 7 inches. The total finished size of the throw quilt is 40"X 54".

    This is the top, of course [​IMG] , It has 3 different shade of denim and the printed fabric is a rust burgundy color with white snowflakes on it.

    Here is the print on the fabric

    Here is the back of the quilt which is is a flannel backing that is navy blue/green plaid

    I am so happy that it turned out so nice. Thinking of selling but not sure. [​IMG]

    Quote:The only thing it is hard on is your fingers [​IMG] The actual quilting is pretty easy but all I did was followed the seams. I can't do no fancy quilting. I could though, if I had the dream machine (Long Arm Quilting Machine).
