    UCLA Fleece Quilt

    Has anyone made a quilt from College fleece fabric? If so, how did you do it?

    My son is graduating from UCLA and I want to make him a throw size quilt using the UCLA fleece fabric. I have scoured the net and found numerous tutorials on how to make a no-sew fleece throw. These are fun throws but I want to make a very special quilt since he's getting a graduate degree in TV Production.

    Any ideas would be very welcome.

    Thanks a bunch,

    Sande

    I have the UCLA Fleece fabric. I bought it last year with hopes of incorporating it into a quilt for Ben.

    How about using the fleece for the back of the quilt and doing a pattern with UCLA colors for the front?

    I made several Bears t-shirt quilts backed with Bears fleece. maybe see if you can find or steal out of his closet to use on the front.

    If you crochet, then crochet-lined fleece blankets look really nice and are a step up from just fleece, assuming you don't have a quilt idea instead.
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Thanks for the video links for no sew blankets. I'll watch them but I was hoping to stay away from that look. That's great that you almost attended UCLA!

    I was going to suggest the same as Cari. There are so many fabrics you can use for the front and then have the coziness of the fleece for the back and you may not need batting then.

    This is a very good suggestion. I think I might look through some old t-shirt and use t-shirts on one side and fleece on the other. I agree I probably don't need batting with this combination.

    Thanks.

    Hi Sue,
    I have tons of t-shirts that I've saved over the years and I think this is the time to break them out. I'll use the UCLA fleece on one side and t-shirts on the other. I assume I won't need to add a batting because this combination will be thick. Thanks for your input. Sande
