Very lovely quilt, my favor fabric, Thank you for also showing the back.
Thank you. I had wanted to take a picture of the whole back, but forgot.
Angie, you did a beautiful job, love how straight you got your plaids. This must have weighed a ton! I have only made lap quilts out of denim and they are hard to work with with all that weight. NICE work!
Thank you. It did weigh a ton and throughout the process and sewing, I needed to support the quilt, otherwise my sewing machine would complain.
Great job. I know what your mean with hands hurting. After doing my granddaughter's quilt my hands hurt so bad. I doubt I ever make another larger quilt. But hubby and grandson are both tall and would probably appreciate a longer quilt. I am sure your son is appreciative.
I couldn't use a heavy quilt. But Florida is warm - most of the time, and it is hard for me to sleep under quilts. My husband was from West Virginia, and he says he remembers waking up so sore when it was colder weather because of the weight of the multiple quilts they slept under. LOL
Thank you for your comment. I myself do not like heavy covers. Love my down feather covers. They do well all year around.
Great work Angie, and I love the fact that it can be reversible! I'm sure he was thrilled with it.
I have light quilts, not heavy ones for me, Trevor loves heavy quilts, as he's a cold frog, but for me, it doesn't get that cold here in Newcastle. Love Chris
Thanks Chris. I thought the jean material would be scratchy and the flannel gave it softness and warmth.
I love this!
What a beautiful labor of love you have created. I have no doubt he thanks you every night as he falls asleep. I hope you manage to recover quickly. I'm sure you were very happy to hand it to your son so your muscles can recover.
Now with it getting cold arthritis kicked in, and handling the weight while sewing did not help. I am glad it is done and I like the result.
I’m like your son. I like a little heaviness to sleep under. This should keep him snug and warm. Nice job and I love those plaids.
I know all about handling heavy denim too. After I made a queen with denim, I too said ‘never again’. I have made smaller throw size with denim but do hope never to make another big bed quilt with it.
Having to support the weight, as the quilt grew, made my shoulders hurt.
I can well understand you. Just the old weather makes my recently mended shoulder hurt. I have quilted a quilt since my break but had to have frequent rest periods. Thankfully we do get them finished.🥴
That is lovely and he will feel tightly held by you every time he slips underneath it.
Thank you. I hope so. 😊
Wow what a beauty :):)Love it .
You must love him a lot! Nicely done.
I do. He is my oldest and the recipient of one of my kidneys.
What a great quilt
Thank you. My sewing machine and I are recuperating
you sure did a great job, heavy but worth it. I can imagine he loves it and is very proud to have a creative mom like you❤️😘
Thank you. Yes he does love the quilt. Stitched all his grandchildren's names on the quilt plus his dogs names
Wow, this is totally awesome!! Oh, the things we do for our kiddos! Just imagine how comfortable he will sleep under this beautiful quilt!! Hugs to you and your son, Laura
Thank you. You are right. I do not think I would do this for anyone else. Hugs 😊
