Raurk asked me if I could make him a “puffy” quilt, extra-long to cover his feet. I was able to gather enough “manly” looking fabrics from my stash to cut all the rectangles (3.5 x 6.5 inches) and lay them out in an alternating light/dark set of 15 squares per row. I found the plaid fabric on sale at Thimbles ‘n Threads, where I had earlier purchased the Minkee backing (also on sale -- $6.50 a yard). My machine quilter Wendy used a puffy batting to make this comforter-style quilt – just what the man asked for!
Quilted by Eagle Mountain Quilting. Size is 56.5 x 90.5 inches
