One more finish for March!

Another chunky quilt is done - the Chunky Brown Quilt. This is really a variation as it has two wide rows followed by a narrower row which continually repeats before ending with two wide rows.  

I was going to make a quilt with various colored batik scraps but when I saw that I had so many brown pieces, I decided to go with all brown batiks and to use the narrower widths too. We may keep this quilt; it goes nicely with our furniture. The size, 60" by 80", is good for reading and/or napping on the couch.

I quilted it with a double loop using 40-wt Glide thread #20464 Medium Brown thread. 

The back is a medium brown with darker brown flecks.

Now it's time I get real serious about a graduation quilt that I need for later this spring...


  1. Enjoy your new cuddle quilt. You deserve it!

  2. Congrats on your latest quilt finish, Jeanne!! I really like the added interest the variation in strip widths provides. Enjoy this lovely brown quilt... It looks SEW cozy!

  3. Enjoy every minute of your retirement. Retirement is all about finding the activities that make us feel our best and creating as much happiness for our self as we can during this unique period of life.
