Easy Unicorn Quilt

Hi everyone! I made this quilt from the book that Jen suggested, Patchwork & Quilted Gifts.
The quilt is called "Super Quick and Easy Baby Quilt," (I made mine a throw size) under the 2-4-hour gifts. The idea is that you take your front fabric, back fabric, and batting, layer then in this order, from top to bottom: front fabric, right side up; back fabric wrong side up; batting. Pin and sew all the way around leaving a 6" opening for turning. Turn and lay flat. To quilt all you do is make a mark every 4" (check your batting and see the limit for how far the quilting can be spaced apart) and use one of the fun and tight stitches on your sewing machine and do one on every mark. I used orange: you can see them on the princess and the pea side, but what is nice is that on the unicorn side it blends in sew ;) well with the print that you do not notice the quilting. It was a cinch!

It is the same idea as tying, just a hip, new twist. And you feel pretty cool that you just made a quilt in only a few hours. Posted by Picasa
