A Little Non-Quilty Stuff

Yesterday my one big project was a fleece throw for my oldest grandson. His favorite color is orange and he is also a NASCAR fan and loves the flame designs. Over the summer a friend was visiting from the Netherlands and bought some awesome fleece fabric for a coat. Jeffrey loved the fabric. She had some left over from her coat so she gave it to him....(or to me to make something for him). Below is what transpired. It wasn't quite wide enough as it was to cut the fringe part so I added on strips to fringe and tie. I switched sides of the fabric to give it a bit of interest. Oh, and the picture below is not that accurate -- the throw IS an even rectangle - it is just the way it is hanging on my design wall.

Here is one corner folded over so you can see both sides.

I gave it to him last night when he came over and it is now in permanent residence on his bed. When he saw it he said, "SWEET"!!! That is high praise coming from a 9 year old!
