    then start in the center and work out side to side, top to bottom...you do not need alot of quilting, just a few lines down and a few across and it's done and ready for binding. fleece is also a good choice if going to tie your quilt.
    i'm sad so many people say...don't use fleece...it makes wonderful quilts!
    I have one question about fleece - - have you tried quilting it on a frame, or did you do it on your portable sewing machine because of the stretch?

    You are right. I machine quilted, continious line, swirls and curls. Maybe the person I made it for will like it---I don't!!! Never again. Lesson learned---To all who like quilting with fleece---YOU are much better at this than I am. Blessings!!!
