Cheater

Oldest Son asked for a really big quilt to take to college.....I guess his Charlie Brown Football quilt has seen better days....
I decided to make 12 1/2 inch squares and frame them with 2 1/2 strips.  The assemble was quick.  I "cheated" buy backing it with a microfleece blanket that I bought at Target.  Then I tied it with floss because there is no way to quilt the stretchy microfleece....and the fuzzies would have done my machine in.


It was a 2 day project....all wrapped and ready for Christmas....and hopefully safe to blog about because I am doubting he reads my blog.  :)
I made it King size for him....it took up the whole living room floor.

I found it rather "boring"....but he likes things plain and simple.  He will know it was made with love....makes it all worth it.  :)

I love using fleece to back quilts! We do most of our RMD that way. Minkie is the only type that I've had to fight with as far as quilting goes. BTW, I took some of "your" scones to the hospital where we volunteer for the staff, and they were a real hit. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Merry Christmas, Sheila.

Looks comfy--too bad the front has such "ugly" material on it!!! :-) I know three kids at the Klimie house, though, that would think that material was AWESOME! :-)
