Here are three quilts that I have made since the beginning of the year.  The first one I made totally for me, while the second and third i made just for fun.

This is a queen sized quilt and I like to call it Victorian garden.  I ended up making matching pillowcases and even curtains out of the plaid material in the quilt.  The back is just a queen sized brown flat sheet.  The last few quilts I have made I have just used flat sheets for the back.  I usually buy them in a set and then it sort of leaves out a step in the bed making process...lol

This quilt is a full sized quilt and yes those squares are corduroy, brown, pink and turquoise!  For this one I used another brown flat sheet.  It is a thick and heavy quilt-definitely keeps one warm in the winter.


This quilt is full size as well but is very light.  It is very punk and pinwheels I think are fun.  It has a black flat sheet for backing and just a sheet in between.  It works out wonderfully in the summer when the air conditioner just isn't working but you need a blanket to sleep with...lol

These are great! I would love to learn to quilt! I have several that my great aunt made and I love them. Using a sheet for the back is a great idea

Thanks! Actually if you can work a sewing machine a basic square pattern is really easy to learn and do.  My first time I used this booklet that was like 13 pgs long and told me how to do everything in a simple way.

Your quilts are great!  I sleep with a summer quilt here in Florida - no batting, just two layers and it's perfect.

Oh oh oh, I love the "punk" one, I so want to make one with that vibe now.

Those are great!  I really like the idea of the corduroy one - I may have to try that to keep me and the hubs warm in the winter!  Maybe that will be my next quilting project . . . though I really should make something else for my daughter .  . . decisions, decisions . . . Cheesy
