I am trying again with the quilt I posted earlier.

This is the back.

I do not know what I did differently. Ugg

Solstice, the ugg was about my being unable to post the picture. I love the little quilt. There was a previous post and I was in my own little world! :)

Rosa, Thanks for the good words. I did not measure it but I'd say it is over 45 inches either way- a little wider than tall. DGD is 8 years old; when she wrapped herself in it, it was dragging the floor. I looked at the pattern but it doesn't give a finished size.
Now that I've made it once I would not mind making it again. They suggested the regular fabric/batting/fabric construction but I found I like using fleece as a backing and no batting is needed.

Sally I agree about the fleece.
I love rag quilts, but the seams make them heavy enough without adding batting and the fleece is so soft.
Especially for a youngster.
