    Hi!

    I am making a Yankees quilt for my husband for Christmas. I have no hope of finishing it before Friday, but am giving it to him anyway.

    both sides are flannel and I put batting in the middle. The emblems are fleece. The "man cave" where he watches TV is cold in the winter time. I obviously haven't washed it yet, so it hasn't frayed.

    I cut the squares with my die cut machine, but I had to do the Yankee emblem with freezer paper. Accucut wanted $140 for a custom cut Yankee emblem. After cutting out 120 of them, I wish I had taken them up on it!!! the emblems are hand appliqued.

    When finished it will be 10 squares X 12 squares.

    Rose

    Wow, Rose!!! That's a lot of NY emblems to be hand appliqueing!!!!

    My husband would say "EWWWW....." He's a devoted Boston Red Sox fan, and is not fond of the Yankees!!! :lol: :lol:

    No I have the Go. I haven't used it much but the verdict is still out as to whether I like it or not. I'm going to give it a chance before I say anything bad. Don't want to jinks myself

    I just measured it--the fringe is 3/4" long and 1/4" wide.

    NOT having to cut it with scissors?? priceless.

    Actually, he is impossible to keep a secret from. He knows about it, but hasn't seen it (that I know of, anyway...)
