More “Uber-Eazy” Quilts

This is the same quilt as the FREE quilt I’m giving away this month.  The difference is that the borders are 6″ and not 8″.  I quilted the quilt first then added the applique and RicRac while it was still on the machine.  I used Janet Platt’s “Quick Points Ruler to make the 1″ Prarie Points in yellow fabric.
I sewed the Prarie Points into the binding.  The centers of the flowers are the really large buttons (they cost $2.50 out here!) but I thought that they were well worth the effect.  I backed this quilt in Minkie too of course!
This quilt is a crib size.  It needed something more so after I quilted it I made a Lazy Dazy applique flower.  I used “Heat-n-Bond” just around the outside edges of the applique and ironed them onto the quilt.  Then I used variegated DMC floss (3 strands) to stitch a large “Blanket Stitch” around the outside of the applique.  I then used a “Chain Stitch” down the center of each petal and leaf to help secure them better.  Around the yellow center I used a new product called “PomPom Baby” from Riley Blake.
In order to put the PomPom Baby around the outside we sewed the binding onto the back (instead of the front like you usually do) and hand sewed the binding to the front and included the PomPom Baby in with it.
Another quilt I did using the same design, but doing something slightly different with the corners of the border.  This Black quilt is done as simply as possible.  I used black minkie for the back of this too.  This gives the quilt a lacy look.  For all my Scalloping I use “Easy Scallop” by EZ Quilters.  It takes a fraction of the time that any other method that I know of.
Have a great day quilting!!
