I don't think I'll make one again
I just realized that I never showed certain interested people what Danny's comforter looked like as a finished product (it took entirely too long, almost a month and I don't think I'll ever make another one like it again)
...So hear it is.
And no his bed isn't really "made"...I just threw the covers up. And the big lump underneath is a handful of stuffed animals. Surprise, surprise (hey...it's just not worth the fight.)
This comforter/quilt was a pain in the butt to make. I started with 2 very soft, very stretchy blankets. Both the front and back are striped. There is a thin piece of batting inside. Since it is fleece and will not fray...I overlapped the stripes seams, but when sewing together the front and back, I hid the seams. To keep the batting from slipping, I hand tied it, every 6 inches or so. The outcome was exactly what I was looking for, though.
PS It was a little dark in the room , but I think you'll get the gist of it.
