Little Sis is graduating high school next weekend (she's 8 years younger than me). I can't believe she's all grown up already. She's going to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln for college and majoring in Medieval-Renaissance History with a minor in Music. Nebraska is a far ways from Virginia, but I know she's excited.
I measured 1/2" from each edge of the black fleece and pinned generously (seriously, you need to use about a million more pins than you think so the seam allowance stays at your measured 1/2"), then pinned the red fleece on top, butting up to the pinning (so each seam is overlapped by 1/2"). Then I used a twin needle and top-stitched each seam. It was my first time using a twin needle; I llluuurrrvvveee it! I'm going to have to find more projects to sew with a twin needle!
Yeah, that's a full bed that "throw" is laid out on. At least Sis will be warm during those cold winters!
(One thing I didn't do that would've made it even more crisp- rotary cut the strips to get a nice sharp edge. I did okay with scissors, but rotary cutting would have made everything just a touch better.)
