If my KAQ wasn't so darn ugly (totally my fault), I'd love it. It's a little heavier than I want to carry on a thru, but it really is a nice quilt. I haven't had to opportunity to really test it (the whole hot in Florida thing), but for the cost of material and time to build- I think it's a great deal. Can't remember what it cost material wise, but I think it was around $65. Then the trip back to the store to buy pins. Lots and lots of pins!
