    The Kermit Top Quilt (JCP Puffer)

    image.jpg

    Thanks to my dear big sister I now have a DIY quilt. I guess technically its a let your big sister do it project.

    It is made from two 4xl JCP Puffer jackets. We used all but two of the black sleeves.

    I am 6ft tall and hate to be short quilted, so this one is 7ft long x 46in wide. Including the stuff sack it weighed in at 20 oz.

    I not only got a cheap top quilt, but got to spend quality time with my awesome sister!

    We have named it "The Kermit!"

    Very cool TQ.

    Yet . . . is it cooler than having a sister make it for you ?

    Two equally cool things.
