    Quick fleece blanket

    Made really quick fleece blanket for grandson using yard and half of fleece, standard quilt binding in cotton and an embroidery design that he picked. Call me crazy, but I hand stitched the binding down as I do all my quilts. Nice "sitting in front of the TV work"!

    Thanks for looking!

    You did a great job on it.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Love the dragon on the blue! Hand stitching is good for TV time! Sure makes that a good-looking blanket!

    I love the embroidery. I make these myself, although the difference is that I use the Rayon binding, of days past. This is the last one I made, and the mother loved it since it reminded her of the blankets she loved.
    Happy Quilting,

    What a nice blanket.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    What a nice finish. Gives the blanket more "heft" and a very nice detail! Love it!
