The X-Men Quilt

Shhh, don't tell Sean but this is his quilt for Xmas. I know I am kinda cheating but I found this hidden away when I did my massive spring cleaning. Yes, massive as in bringing 40 thirty gallon bags of stuff to Goodwill.
 I forgot I had bought this about 7 years ago. I have the pillow case, fitted sheet and the flat sheet. I was going to make a skirt or dress out of this but I'm glad I didn't. Now I'll tell you how to do this quilt which is quite simple. I had done this to a Spider man sheet too.

All you do is buy 2 3/4 yards of 200 weight fleece and sew them together. Now there are two ways of doing this.
1. First one is putting both fabrics right sides together and sewing all around. You leave a little spot open to turn the quilt inside out. Then you sew the outside of the quilt including the hole you had to turn this inside out.
2. I am about to do this on this quilt but it shouldn't be to hard. I am pinning this with safety pins from the sides, middle and everywhere else to have it even. I will sew this all around  the fabric with the wrong sides together. Then I will add binding to the whole edge and use DMC floss to bind the quilt together.
That's all it takes to make these. They are quite warm and awesome to have especially for the comic book fan.
