Another quilt for Cody

This is a rag quilt for Tanya's brother Cody.  One of his son's took the one we made him for Christmas last year.  Notice is only one print of fabric. He wanted the quilt in a camouflage print and I showed him a sample of this fabric and thought of doing black or green with it, but he only wanted the one fabric. It is super easy if  there is no pattern to keep track of. 

This thing in huge for a lap quilt, approximately 6 feet wide by 8 feet long. Cody is 6 ft 5 inches.  It took 13 1/2 yards of fabric. It covers the top of our queen size bed. I did 8 inch squares.  It is the biggest rag quilt I have done on my little Brother sewing machine.  I normally have Richard sew the larger rows together on his bigger machine.

Wow! That's one "big brother"! My first reaction was, "Cody? That's Julia. What?" LOL

All I've made is small one and they were heavy by the time I finished. I can't imagine the weight of Cody's. Did it have two or three layers? Way to go!

It's gotta way a ton!
I bet it is cozy as can be.

Nice finish :0)

Happy Sewing
