Here is my original fleece blanket that I quilted a while back. While I loved the quilting, I didn't love the fringe. Bunk House Quilts made a stadium blanket last week and it had a different kind of edge - fleece binding! She even linked to her tutorial on how to do it.
So I cut off the fringe and added a fleece border that matched the back of the blanket. It's a little small, but I intend to give it as a lap quilt.
Her directions are very clear, but I pinned the binding anyway. There was enough overlap when I pinned it. I trimmed it with my smaller sized super sharp scissors.
You round the corners with a plate, sew the binding (unfolded) to the front with a 1/2 seam allowance, then fold over and stitch in the ditch on the front. Almost like for a regular quilt except there is no ironing!
This is a great type of blanket to practice quilting on. My daughter is doing this with a printed fleece (same fabric on both sides) The quilting doesn't stand out so much this way. We'll be posting on that soon. I accidentally gave the first one away without taking a picture!
My cute helpers!
