    Talking Frankenquilt finished! Picture heavy

    Finshed my Frankenquilt today!
    Before taking on this project I had never sewn a stitch, nor had any idea what a bobbin was! I did my home work here on the forums, dug out an old sewing machine my wifes mother gave to us a few years ago out of the closet, and watched several youtube videos on sewing. I picked up all supplies from DIY Gear Supply minus the down, which i got from Down Lite and used CatSplat's uq spreadsheet for the dimensions.

    Looks great! That should keep you warm on a cold Georgia night. Like the Franken head patch, nice touch.
