Hi!  I feel a little funny asking my question.  I'm making a bunch of baby blankets and am having sooo much fun.  I can do mitered corners now.  Woohoo! 

But I bought one panel of fleece, an American Bald Eagle, adult size actually, for my son (he is 10 but is still my baby), and I want to put satin backed flannel on the other side.  Can I do that on such a big blanket?  Will the two sides hold together okay?  Can I put satin binding around it too?  I sure like satin binding now that I've mastered the corners.

Thanks.  I love craftster.org and have enjoyed reading all the baby posts here.  Thank you especially to the mitered corner lady who posted step by step instructions.  Smiley

I would "tie " it. You get a large needle. Thread with yarn
every once in a while make a large stitch through all layers,
Let the knots be on the plain side.
You do not need too many since the fleece is fairly stable.
Sort of go around the Eagle, then around that
If I did not make enough sence, pm me

Meriweather, you're a doll.  Thank you for such a good idea and also for telling me how to do it.  I am by now embarrassed I posted a regular blanket question on the baby board.  Sorry everyone!

But I've been holding on to my fabric hoping for a reply.  I will try the yarn knots on a mini test blanket to make sure I can do it, then I'll do the real blanket.  Thank you so much, Meriweather.  You're real kind to a ditz like me, and helpful too. My son saw me making all the baby blankets and decided he really needs a blanket (bigger for him) too.  Ha!  I think your idea will look good.  Sewing around or across it wouldn't, and that's what I was considering.

Thanks Meriweather!!!  Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and yours.  I am refreshed and renewed to go and sew now!
