I know this is nothing new but it's my first quilt and I'm super proud of it. I used some cheap polar fleece blankets from Wal Mart as backing. I was so set on finishing this project I was up till 6 in the morning finishing (I started at 7ish).

Nice job!  Your squares are all perfect!  Was it difficult to avoid stretching?  Did you use interfacing?  What weight?

Thanx! Smiley I think stretching was avoided because of the weird polar fleece fabric, it kinda clings to the t shirt material. I didn't use any interfacing at all, it's just two layers one of weird synthetic fleece and the t shirt squares

nice work.

the squares are about 5x5, the whole quilt is a bit longer then my double bed.

Looks great, really cosy. The blue square with the dog is my favourite.
