Finishing A Small Quilt

I am addicted to making small quilts. They are fun because
they are simple and fast. Here is what you will need.
Small quilt top
Fat Quarter for backing
Two 1-1/2" x width of fabrics strips for binding
Flannel for batting - I like flannel instead of batting because
it is easier to get the needle through.

Layer quilt top - flannel - backing
Baste three layers together using large stitches.
Hand quilt your desired design. I like to use YLI Cotton Quilting Thread.
 
To prepare binding sew two 1-1/2" strips together using your
favorite technique. Press one long edge under 1/4". 
Attach binding to quilt placing raw edge of binding 
on right side of quilt top along raw edge. 
Sew in place the same way you would a regular binding. 
Press open and hand stitch down on wrong side of quilt.
 
I love the look of a little hand quilted project fresh out of the dryer.
