I was originally supposed to be making something for the car. That didn't happen.
I really think I have been burned out with all the sewing I did over the last 2 weeks, so I decided to ease my way back into sewing for this weeks project.
About 8 months ago I started a fleece quilt for Ran. I let him go through my fleece remnant stash and pick out all the patterns that he liked. I cut them into squares and pieced them together to make what turned into a very large quilt top. The whole thing has been finished for months. Both the top and the back have been pieced and ready to go since the early fall, but I had yet to take that next step to baste them together.
This is a big quilt. Ran has a full size bed and I wanted this sucker to take the place of his cruddy old comforter. I spread them out in my living room wrong sides together and set out to pinning. I wasn't to precise about smoothing out the top. Fleece is pretty forgiving and I know Ran won't mind if it isn't perfect.
Next step has to get this giant sucker into my machine.
I decided to do an easy grid pattern. Sewing from corner to corner across each block.
I think I am about half way done with the quilting. When all the quilting is done I will do a quick serging around the edge.
