This was done as a Quilt as You Go project, which made this a very easy quilt to make. All quilting was done before the blocks were joined. I used fusible batting to sandwich the blocks.

I love the colors and I really enjoyed making this one :-)

I love this quilt but I don't see Sunbonnet Sue or hot pink zebras anywhere.  LOL

So how do you join your pre-quilted blocks?

Thanks everyone! There are a couple different ways to join pre-quilted blocks. In this version, the top of each block was made around 2 inches smaller than the back and batting. After the block is sandwiched and quilted (I used fusible batting), stack two of the blocks together (back to back right sides together) seam them together (the seam allowance will be visible on the front), press seams to each side(again on front). Fold under a 1/4 seam (to hide raw edges) and then fold to each side and seam 1/4 onto the front block. And VIOLA! You do the rows the same way. After all are joined you already have a binding attached (due to extra on back) on the ends of the rows, sides, top and bottom where you haven't sewn them down. So ya just sew them the same way you did the blocks and rows. Maybe I should blog a QAYG quilt. It took me forever to find a simple way to do this and I was so excited when I did! For those of us with limited space and smaller machines, it's fantastic! And actually there is a more simple way to do this. I'll post when I decide to do this and it will be soon hopefully. Thanks everyone!

Great quilt Debbie.  I am planning to do a similar one sometime this year --- well maybe.  :o)  You know how that goes.  Let up know if you do one in your blog so I can take a look at how you do yours.
