Quilt for my Dad...


This is a quilt I am putting together for my dad. I found this batik with the medicine bear and bear paw on it and thought it was perfect for him. He loves to snowbird, and they spend most of their time in AZ, so this was perfect for him! For the backing I used a microfleece. I was a little nervous about using it because of the stretchiness of the fabric but I sewed the backing selvage to selvage and eliminated most of the stretching. I really like how it looks too! The stitches give the microfleece an embossed look. I think my next few quilts will have the microfleece on the back! It was fun to use!
