Lap Quilts as Gifts

So I can finally post photos of the lap quilts I was working on since they were given out last night as gifts.   I purchased fleece one piece panels from Fabric.com and quilted them to flannel as the backing.  They turned out really soft and heavy enough to be a great lap quilt.  I love them!  Now I want to do some more of these. 

 
They were simple to put together.  Because the panel stuck so well to the flannel backing it was simple to quilt and I took pains to make sure no bumps would form during the quilting process.  They turned out better than anticipated.  I finished both of these in one day.

The quilting blends into the flannel so it isn’t too noticeable.  I spaced the lines about two inches apart to make sure the quilt stayed together.  Such an easy way to make a gift for the sports fan in your life!
 
I didn’t have to bind them since I stitched the two sides together and then turned them inside out.  I think it gives it a better look.
