I made this quilt for my twin sister for Christmas this past year. It took me a couple hours to cut the squares (If you don't have a mat and rotary cutter, you should definitely get one.) The back is more than 2 yds. I'd say maybe 2.5 to 3 (I just used the remaining colors of my other squares and made a nice pattern on the back) Sewing the squares took me 2 days pretty much nonstop sewing. I also didn't cut the seams at the end because I thought it looked classier without the completely "ragged" look.
I made this quilt for my grandmother for christmas. The finished product looked so good, everyone loved it and wants one made for them. The project took very long though and i worked on it regularly. Definitely longer than a weekend. I think the cutting alone took me 15 hours. If you're using a sewing machine to sew the rows together, u want to make sure you have a heavy duty machine...the multiple layers of fleece is hard to sew through. And i agree with the previous post that the backing takes 3 yds of fleece, not 2. My advice is to go to joanns when they have the fleece 50% off and stock up. Overall, i would make this again definitely but allow lots of time so i dont feel rushed at the end.
I made this quilt last chirstmas for my mom. It turned out wonderful. It is VERY VERY warm and a little smaller that you think from the picture. You definately need sewing experience and cutting the 9" squares sucks and takes way longer than a weekend, but in the end is well worth it. My advise leave youself lots of time.
I love the looks of the finished project but it took a lot of time to complete. I have never made a quilt before and maybe that was the problem. It looks great and once I got to going it was easier to do. I did have to figure out how to attach all the squares (maybe my lack of quilting). Overall, looks great but takes a lot of patience!
I had a lot of fun creeating this. I personalized mine though and made it big enough to fit our queen size bed. It has lightened up our room, and was worth the time it took to make! I'm making them for the whole family for Christmas now!
I like the looks of the quilt and seems easy. The only thing is that the backing took 3yds material instead of 2. I have everything cutout and partly sewed. So far so good.
