From the 70's . . .

I made THIS:


These were Jeanne's clothes from the 70's, made from wool plaids and velour.  She wanted a queen sized quilt.  I added cream colored flannel for the front, and red flannel for the back.  There is a 17" border top and bottom to get the desired size, so I added quite a bit of quilting.  I used a 3" template for the large circles, and then filled in with swirls and smaller circles.  The quilt is really heavy and warm with all the wool and flannel.  It's 92 x 108.
