Wow…these two quilts are some of my longest WIPs.  I first blogged about it in February of 2010…  You’ll notice that in that blog post, this actually started as one quilt top.  A very, very large quilt top.  I drug it out of my stash a couple of weeks ago and decided to rip the seam down the middle and have two normal sized tops.

Overall, I’m really happy with how these twin quilts turned out.  I opted to simply back both with flannel, leaving out batting and quilting in the ditch.

It leaves both quilts with a nice drape and lightweight feel.  Perfect for summer time picnics, I think!  Each quilt finished up just shy of 60″ x 80″ and I couldn’t be happier to have finally moved this project from the WIP pile to the finished pile!
