A Sleeping Bag Quilt

I finished this sweet quilt just in time for Christmas...(with a little time to spare!)
The best part of this quilt is that it is a sleeping bag.  I cleared a lot of fabric from my stash with this sleeping bag quilt.
I attached the zipper before adding the binding.  It's a 72-inch separating zipper, and then I attached the binding as usual. No problems!  I did round the corners for easy zipping.  I also used bias binding because of the rounded corners.  The zipper runs incredibly smooth.
It looks like a completely normal quilt from the front.
I quickly meander quilted this one.  It is backed with fleece and still has a layer of cotton batting in the middle.  It is thick and has some cushion to it.
I have another quilt already quilted.  I will add a zipper and binding today.  I am on task and on time for Christmas so far.

Happy Stitching,


  1. so cool, did you have a pattern or just wing it???

  2. I love this idea! What size is the quilt- roughly? I would love to make one for each of my kiddos! Thanks! Sarah: crjandsbj(at)netzero(dot)com

  3. Love your color selections with the pattern and the fact that it is a sleeping bag too boot - how cute is that!

  4. Wow!! I never ever thought of making a quilt sleeping bag! You are a genius! It is fantastic.

  5. "On task and on time for Christmas" -- oh, don't rub it in! : )

    Congratulations on your finish. I'm sure the recipient will love it!

  6. This is gorgeous! I love that you used fleece for the backing. How clever to add the zipper and make it into this cool sleeping bag. Nice job! Someone's going to be so happy to get this for Christmas!

  7. That is an AWESOME idea! I think I will steal this idea for next Christmas for my kiddos, nieces and nephews.

  9. Awesome! It sounds cuddly and perfect for sleep overs. :)

  10. Oh wow! That's amazing! I mean it's a gorgeous quilt before you even get near the fact that it's also a sleeping bag - and that is the height of snugliness!

  11. It's so much more fun than any sleeping bag I've ever had! Thanks for linking up with me for TGIFF this week. :-)

  12. A sleeping bag QUILT??!??! Brilliant! And I would never have thought it was as simple as just adding the zipper before adding the binding - it had to be a woman that came up with THAT idea, LOL! I'm sure the recipient was very happy :)
