Lego Quilt finished


And here it is on our queen-sized bed.  I had decided to back it with polar fleece, and skip the batting.  With all the seams on the front, this is a HEAVY quilt.

I asked Catherine to use an over-all quilting pattern with some curves to it.  This scroll pattern shows up well on the back with the black thread, and really disappears on the front.

After I got the quilt back, I simply cut the fleece one inch bigger than the top, turned it to front and zig-zagged it down.  A very easy finish as a break from my work on clearing the bed in the sewing room.  But nice to be able to add one more finish to the list for 2011.

That is one wild quilt! I like the idea to use fleece on the back.

Oh my, that looks like such a fun to quilt to snuggle up with and to just look and look at! I really like your idea of fleece on the back. Now it's just right for wintertime in Michigan! Wonderful - and congratulations!
