It was time to change to a warmer quilt this week and I pulled this one out. It was an anniversary quilt that I made for a present to my husband in 1999 - and gave it to him 2000. It's called 'Buzzwheel' among other names. We both like using it a lot. It's made from flannels and has a super warm backing of triple weight fleece. We think that it is about as warm as our down comforter - which I generally don't pull out until January - or when it first snows around here! I think that "Lily" agrees - she like this quilt on the bed!
