    This is the first of a pair of 'quicky' stash and scraps quilt, I decided to buy fleece for the back and used a thin cotton batting, it is so cosy!!

    These are for my son and girlfriend to snuggle under while watching tv!!

    The pattern started off as a square in a square, which you slash offset then reorganise each corner...bit like the D9P :D

    I will put a link up when I can find the website I got it from, :wink: :D

    I love the quilt design, so would like a link when you find it please, I love your choice of colours, and the fancy stitches for quilting, but best of all, I love your name for this quilt. Made me feel very hungry!

    Hi Jan,

    Yes it gets nippy in the evenings, or like today when it rains it can be chilly, but not bad, it's just after having high temperatures you feel it when it drops !! My son lives in the UK, and it's blinking freezing there already!! :lol: :D

    Very nice! I like the decorative stitching, too. Gives it more character.

    Your quilts are pretty. I like the stitch you used to quilt them.
    Fleeced backed quilts are one of my favorite ways to make what I call "quick quilts". I make most of my baby/children quilts that way. I use fairly dense fleece and do not put any batting it them. Works great.

    I often use a "connecting" stitch (074 on my Q6600 machine). It goes pretty quickly. I love it for stitching the fleece down on the front of the quilt--I nearly always bring the fleece from the back to the front to form the binding.

    Ha ha!! We had just been down to 'Iceland' last week, and my fella bought a Terry's chocolate orange, but really this has ALL the colours of chocolate.....maybe I should have called it Chocolate Box Split..... :D I am glad you noticed the stitching Lacelady, I have only just discovered that I can actually do several fancy stitches using my walking foot :shock: I have only had this machine over 2 years...I SHOULD have known that by now lol!!

    I will look for the link now for you!! :D

    I have a Janome 9000 and have been playing with another couple of stitches today on my next project being quilted :D

    I did wrap the fleece round to the front and used the same herringbone type stitch to finish it, all very quick and easy, no problems with the fleece, it had no stretch length ways, so quilted that way first to hold it all , lots of pins and not one pucker I am pleased to say phew!! :D

    :D There's a link to the pattern, I could have done less quilting, to emphasise the central squares, but couldn't be bothered stopping and starting :wink: :D

    Thanks Aberi, :D

    I have done several D9P which start off as a nine patch, this pattern starts off as a framed square, which is the subcut off centre then rearranged before sewing back together...errrmmm clear as mud??? Have a look at the link I posted on page 1 so you can see what I mean :lol: :D :D

    Love the snuggy quilt. Thanks for the link. It's a little to hot for me in Georgia to have a fleece backing, but I like the idea.

    Lovely delicious quilt Izy! (I can even get the aroma of a Terry Choc orange!)
    Thank you for the link - I planned to do a square-in-square soon but may now have to try this pattern instead...........
