The quilt top is finished!

(Is quilt top supposed to be one word or two?) It's a bit bigger than I had expected, but oh well. Not a problem at all. Here's a picture of the quilt top with two small children on it for size. And just for fun.I don't plan to put any sort of batting or padding in here. I think that denim and flannel together should keep it warm enough. This is the sheet that is going to turn into the backing:
Since we already had the sheet and I collected torn jeans over a period of several months, this project is going to be completely free. Well, except for the thread and the many needles I broke by sewing cavalierly over pins! But for a blanket big enough to put on a bed, I consider that a pretty good deal, and I'm happy.
