This little baby took up a lot of my time over the summer, but even better: It helped me reduce some of my fabric stash. The entire quilt top (twin size, by the way) is made from fabric that was leftover from other projects. The batting was one I had stored in the basement. The flannel backing, and floral binding were also taken from my fabric closet.
And as of this morning, the quilt is now considered 'purged', as I gave it to a friend. It is intended for her step-daugher, who just moved here from her native Africa. I am sure she will appreciate the flannel backing when she comes upon her first Minnesota Winter!
