    I had someone request a NY yankee quiilt for their new baby.
    In the Oklahoma panhandle it's kinda hard to find any NY Yankee fabric.
    On a recent trip to tulsa I found NY Yankee fleece so I bought some. I had never seen a quilt made of fleece let alone make one but I think it turned out pretty good.I decided to make the label look like a baseball with a signature on it.
    I used a low loft batting and used flannel for the back. It really isn't too heavy but I bet it will be warm.
    Thanks for looking!

    You did a wonderful job! Wish I had thought to do one like that when my son's girls were born. He is a die hard NY Yankee fan! Oh forgot to mention I think that baseball label is just adorable.

    The idea of the label is so inspired. The quilt is darling.

    My Significant other has been asking me over and over to make him an "Anaheim(sp?) Angels" quilt for awhile... But I have not been able to find COTTON fabric. I have never sewn with fleece?? What was it like to sew with? and Quilt ? One more question... Can anyone tell me the difference B/T Fleece and Flannel? Thanks all. Wonderful Yankees Quilt !!

    A person can definitely tell the differnce between fleece and flannel. Fleece is a little harder to work with. Luckily this fleece had pinstripes.
    I had to count stripes in 3 different areas on both sides in able to get it straight. Then I stitched in the ditch sorta by stitching along the stripes (about every 5th one). without the stripes I don't know if I could have gotten it straight.
