It is hard to believe that it is time to finish our tops. Is the artist in you seeing the design possibilities? I suspect everyone of our projects will look unique and make this a very special gift.
To quilt these I recommend a pantograph or an overall meander. I am using Minky for the backs as I love the cuddly nature of that fabric. Since it is 60" wide, no piecing is required and you can get by with purchasing 1-1/4 yards. Here are some of my finished quilts.
The football quilt below was done entirely with scraps. I had some leftover pieces from a sports quilt for my nephew which I pieces together for the "theme print". Then I used fabric from my shelves to fill in the rest. It truly feels like a "free quilt".

Have had the first of 2 hand surgeries, 2nd is next week. Needless to say I haven't gotten to my quilt yet but I have my fabric and am opting for a Christmas panel for the "theme" print. Should be really cute!
