I finished the denim quilt on Friday. I knew it was one of those projects I needed to stay on top of, or it may end up sitting halfway done for quite a long time.
I backed the quilt with a soft floral flannel. Now it is pretty heavy, but great for picnics I think.
I just did a running stitch with some specialty yarn I had leftover from a sweater I made Bella a few years ago. I ended up with just two inches of leftover yarn. I wouldn't have cut it that close had I planned ahead better.
I really like the way it turned out. The finished size is 60"x70". I used warm and natural batting to reduce bulk. Perhaps it will be used today for a lunchtime picnic.
