On the lighter side
Yesterday I finished this quilt for summer. There is no layer of batting in the middle. So really, it's nearly as light as a cotton sheet.
Plus, very minimal quilting makes it loose and flimsy. And lighter.
For the backing I used this textured cotton. It makes the back look as light and airy as the quilt feels.
What I think I love most about this quilt is that my 10 year old wanted to use it as soon as it was pulled from the dryer. Ten to twelve new quilts are pulled fresh from the dryer every year and I never get that reaction. I'm hoping this means she will use it inside, outside and up-side-down all summer long.
It's going to look especially nice on my newly painted vintage metal glider.
