little quilt monday~~~finished baby quilts

Little Quilt Monday

I finished two more baby quilts to take to South Africa in late July. 
 I ended up finishing them without a binding.  

Click on the picture for a closer look.

I finally decided if I was going to have them ready in time, 
 that the no binding technique would not only be faster, but also an appropriate method for a baby quilt.

 The black and white baby quilt is 29 X 40 inches
 and the star baby quilt is 29 X 36 inches.

I have 3 baby quilts finished for my trip to Africa, and a few more ready to be machine quilted.
As much as I enjoy hand stitched binding, I think that this will be
a quicker and more practical way to finish these baby quilts.

What do you think about quilts without binding?

Now it is your turn to link up something to

Little Quilt Monday

1.  This link-up party is for any small project.  For example, mini quilts, doll quilts, baby quilts, place mats, mug rugs, purses,
wall quilts, table runners, etc.

2.  They can be a WIP(work-in-progress) or finished.

3.  If it is something from the past there is no need to write a new blog post, just link the one that you have already written, and please link back to my blog post. 
 I have added
the code to my button if you would like to add that to your blog.

4.   If you are interested, you can add your pictures to my flickr group here, or join my Facebook group here. 

Let's inspire each other!

I have linked up to Fabric Tuesday.

Thise are so cute! I especially love the black & white disappearing 9-patch with color. I'm not familiar with the no-binding technique... can you elaborate or post a tutorial/link?

Also, on a totally unrealated note, that yellow bunny print about killed me with cuteness. Just sayin'

I like to finish small quilts this way because it is quicker. If you want it to look like you added a binding, just cut a a one inch strip and add as a border on the edge. Then when you flip and stitch it will look like you have a binding.

Beautiful! I love the way the black and white looks with the little bits of color. Perfect! Tossed nine patch, right? (LOVE the music notes fabric!!!) And the sweet pastels with the star! Some mommies and babies are going to enjoy these so much!
