"52 Weeks" is the new title of my blog of resolutions! When I started this blog it was "52 Quilts", started in 2011 when I decided to make 52 quilts before New Year's Day of 2012. I achieved that goal, and have made a habit of making big New Year's Resolutions. These goals are designed to make me better at a skill, make me a better person, or cross something off my "bucket list". These are my stories about getting there (or failing to get there ;) ).

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
