Here is a fast and easy quilt I made for a friend's new baby.  I started with a 4 1/2 inch square and started sewing strips to it AND the backing which is a piece of soft micro fleece.  I just flipped and sewed so it is basically stitched and quilted at the same time.  It's flannel with fleece backing (no batting) and a satin binding.  Hope the baby and her parents approve!



It's really not that crooked, must be the way I laid it out!   Undecided

That's looks wonderful!

Could you explain the sewing technique again - sorry, but it sounds like a good idea of sewing the back and front at the same time but I'm just not understanding how it's done and would love to understand and try it.

It is just like one big log cabin block.  See the pink square in the middle?  I put it on top of the fleece with the wrong side on the fleece (basically like it is now).  Then the next yellow square I put on top of the pink, right sides together and stitched a 1/4 inch seam through the two squares AND the fleece.  (Make sure you are careful where you stop and start your seams).  Then I flipped out the second square, pressed and sewed the next yello strip to the two squares and the fleece and kept going log cabin style until the "block" or quilt was done.

Clear as mud?
