    scrappy fleece receiving blanket

    So I had so many scraps of fleece that my plastic fleece bin wouldn't close. I saw Nancy Cornwall's book about polar fleece where she says to overlap the seams and use water soluble double-sided tape to hold them before sewing. So that's what I did--I cut all my fleece scraps, coordinated them into matching colors, made them into rectangles with the wavy rotary cutter, and then made them into blocks, and made this receiving blanket. I have enough scraps left to make some more. It was fun.

    so, is it just one layer of fabric? No backing, right? Love this idea.

    Yes; it's pretty much the same on the front and back.
