Description

I was planning on making tights for my daughter and t-shirts for my son but I got side tracked by a big back of leftover fleecy fabric. It kept taunting me because even though I had made 19 baby bibs, 4 pairs of size 0 baby pants, 6 pairs of size 1 baby pants, two easter rabbits, one cosmonaut, one baby blanket and used some as the batting in three baby quilts, there was still a load left. So I cut out a load of 21cm squares and overlocked them into a fleecy quilt, 160cm high x 180cm wide for Winter TV watching.

I used lime green number 5 perle cotton to tie quilt it and have the tied ends on the front. The thread is a few shades darker than the fabric. I’ve never made a tied quilt before so there’s another technique for my repertoire :P

The backing is a 1970’s vintage sheet that was almost on it’s last legs. It was too cute to send to the rag bin so I thought I’d extend it’s life a bit. If it gets holes in it I can always patch it.

Material Notes

Oddments of fleece in lots of bright colours and one 100% cotton vintage double bed sheet.
