I found a quilt like this somewhere online, and you know I love improvised scrap quilts, so I just had to make it! (Sadly, I have lost the link, so if you know where this came from originally, please let me know.)
I have been informed that the grandchildren prefer the quilts backed with polyester fleece for cuddling. The lighter weight of the quilt without batting also makes it ideal for dragging around the house or building forts and tents.
Polyester fleece can be a challenge to quilt because it stretches in at least one direction. The quilter told me that a midarm or long arm quilting machine does not have feed dogs, so stretching was not a problem, though the tension was a problem at times. I suppose I could do free motion quilting with the feed dogs down on my domestic machine, but walking foot quilting might stretch the back.
