little quilt monday~~~doll quilt with faux binding

I made a fast and easy doll quilt this week with the cutest "little red riding hood" fabric.

I started with two fat quarters of fabric and cut ten 5 inch 
squares from each.

It went together really fast and then I decided to use the flip and turn method to finish.  But 
I still wanted the look of binding, so I made a faux binding by adding a one inch border before
I sewed the backing to the front and batting.

After I clipped the corners and turned the quilt out, I hand sewed the opening up.
Then to make the red checked border look like binding, I sewed along the edge...
and it looks pretty believable : )

Sometimes I just need a quick project to start and finish.

I machine quilted this little doll quilt with simple diagonal lines.

I will be making more of these….they are a great scrap buster project!
