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 ...it'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.
What a fun design on the yellow fleece!ReplyDelete
I piece batting all the time - waste not. Right?
Yep!! Those batting cut-offs go a long way at my house - "Frankenstein" leftovers all the time for more quilt mileage from my batting purchases. This is a great stadium quilt.ReplyDelete
