Stadium Quilt #2

Just finished up another stadium blanket: Denim and fleece with fleece binding. 

I made one last month with no batting.  Good thing it was for myself's great to fold and sit on at the hockey games, but I didn't think it was warm enough when we wrapped up in it at the last October soccer game.  They are 60 x 90--perfect for 2 people.


I put batting in this one and used Hobbs 80/20.  I had several good sized chunks of batting and pieced 3 together for this project.  You can easily piece batting.  I posted a tutorial 3 years ago HERE.

How fun is this?
I grabbed some red fleece from the shelf and whipped this binding on in no time.
Tutorial for that is HERE.

Quilted with bright yellow cotton thread.
Pantograph pattern: Sprung, by Willow Leaf Studio.

Quilt of Valor #63

This Quilt of Valor top was made by Judy in Newark, Ohio.
I worked my way across with this fun freehand motif and highlighted a star in the white blocks.

The border got sets of random curves sprinkled with more stars. 

Love her flag and stars backing.
