The Laura Quilt

I asked Laura what her favorite color was and she said green, all kinds of green. So this is named after her. I did something different on the back, a checkerboard of corduroy and chenille. Chenille is such a pain to sew with, especially the new stuff. I looked like I worked in a feather factory when I was finished.
I got the cute animal flannel at the Goodwill, and I'll sell it with the sheet that I bought at the same time. Was going to give the sheet to Myra for Elliot, but I am being a terrible friend, I'll try to make some money off it!

This was a new record, it took me 2 1/2 hours from start to finish, but I didn't do the Xs, it was too thick for batting. How in the world do people actually make a living doing this?
