Aren't these amazing?
I love traditional quilts, too, but this just is not the stage in my life for that process. I made one gorgeous frayed edge quilt in a week last winter and I just started cutting fabric for one as a gift to dh - his birthday is in a couple of weeks. It is denim on one side and flannel on the other - and the book I bought says not to bother with batting when there is denim because it is so heavy already. That means that once I am done cutting (75% there already) I can start sewing "sandwiches", put them together, clip, wash, and I am done!
This could become addictive!
