The wide plastic base on the "Big Foot" machine quilting foot kept the freezer paper in place as I quilted around it and that helped a lot to speed the stitching.
For the last wide blue border I decided to just mimic/echo the small orange border and went back to the walking foot for that. At first I used painters tape (1" wide) as a guide....
...until I remembered that my walking foot has a guide bar! So much easier and time saved not having to reposition (or even use) the tape!
I was a little scared about all the quilting because I have never quilted on fleece (or Minky) before but it was no problem at all. I had no tucks and I've got to admit, I love the additional texture the quilting added to the plushness of the fleece. I will also say that just like having a busy backing print, plush fleece will hide a lot of stitching sins too!
I stitched a basting line in the ditch around the label area so I would know where to make the bobbin changes for it when I was stitching in the front .
