Wow have I been busy. You would think with taking last week off work to spend Spring Break home with Ran that I could have found some time to post. I don't even think I turned my computer on the whole time I was home. I have done lots and lots of sewing over the past 3 weeks and will try to get some updates for you this weekend.
I was finally able to finish Ran's fleece quilt! You may remember it from week 8.
This was a mighty big quilt in the end. I haven't measured it, but it is big enough to fit his full-size bed with extra hanging over. It is made completely out of fleece. The top is pieced squares and the back is three different fleece yardages pieced to fit - I forgot to take a picture of the back - no batting involved.
He loves it!
When I was piecing the top last year I had a lot of squares left over so at that time I made him a small lap quilt. It also gave me a chance to figure out how I was going to do the quilting. He was so excited to get a big quilt to match his little quilt.
For the quilting I did a simple corner to corner grid. I say simple, but it was a serious challenge to get the entire full/queen size fleece quilt into my machine.
To bind the whole thing together I simply ran the edge through the serger. Finished, just in time for the warmer weather...
