My first ever usable quilt.

I just found a photo I took of my first usable quilt.
This  is now a rag, but I have it on an old lounge and the youngest poodle thinks it is a fine place to chew here bones so it need a wash (fell apart a bit more with that).
Here is a photo of it slung across the clothes line, it was too heavy to hang properly, so I let it dry a bit first and then rearranged it.
It was made out of used (second hand) fleecy fabric, I put the fleecy part on the outside. double sided and fitted our queen size bed. It kept us warm for many years. There was no quilting, just two sides sewn together, lol this was before I knew what quilting actually was though, this was to keep warm.

Would need to be nice and warm down there. Looks lovely drying on the line. I have one of those "without quilting "quilts:)I am sure the dog doesn't mind
