Quilt #20 - Gir Quilt (Fleece Applique)

So, the inspiration for this quilt was the daughter of a friend who absolutely love 'Invader Zim'.  She was talking about her upcoming Gir-themed birthday party, and I got the idea.  I had never done a fleece applique, but it was remarkably simple.  I printed a picture off of the internet, then free-hand cut the pieces.  I laid them out, stitched them on, and then outlined using a 1" wide strip of black fleece.  I think it turned out great, and I'll definitely use this technique again... Maybe a tardis quilt from Dr. Who?  Hmmm

Here's the full album:

Charity Pillowcases (Quilts 15-19)

Too many rehearsals, and work, and auditions!!  I've not had a day to myself to just quilt in WEEKS!  So, finding myself a little behind on the quilt project, I decided to make a few more pillowcases for the Million Pillowcases Project.
