So my oldest daughter who already has a beautiful pieced and hand appliqued (first hand applique I did - and it took me forever to do) quilt for her bed at home, and a fun signature quilt for her bed at college, now decides she needs a Purdue quilt for those cold, cold football games she is going to go to! Last year they froze their butts off! So being the good mom that I am I told her I would make her one, and also one for her roommate!
A friend from our guild had this really easy fun pattern for college quilts made with bandannas from the school. So last spring when I picked her up I searched the campus stores and finally found 2 for the start. Of course I didn't work on them at all this summer - wanted to work on fun stuff for me! So this weekend I was in a Purdue quilt top frenzy. I got both tops done, and made each just a tad different so they could tell them apart. I think they turned out pretty good. And the fun part is I found this cool Purdue polar fleece this summer for the back. I thought this would make a really fun back as well as be warm and really cozy!
So I didn't get anything really fun accomplished this weekend, but I did get these tops done. I was going to quilt them myself since they are not too big - but now I'm getting scared because of the polar fleece back! And of course I hadn't scheduled time with a long-armer because I was going to do it myself. I think I"m going to have to bite the bullet and just do it! Any of you ever machine quilt with polar fleece or minky on the back with a regular machine?
