Here is the quilt top that I made from thrifted shirts back in December. I finally finished putting it all together.
I was going to use blue flannel as the backing with batting in the middle, but I laid out the flannel and couldn't stand the way it looked. It was all pilled after I put it through the wash.
Instead, I used this gloriously soft fleece as the backing with no batting in the middle at all.
I simply pinned the fleece and quilt top with right sides together and sewed around the perimeter leaving a small opening to turn the quilt right sides out.
Then I hand-sewed the opening closed and sewed a 1/2 inch top seam around the edge to finish it off. After that I used wool yarn to tie the two layers together. It's a nice, light quilt. Perfect for a little extra warmth on cool spring evenings.
