    I saw a quilt that was made with out sewing. Had two pieces of material together. Was made of fleece on both sides. They took both pieces and attached together by tieing pieces of material all around the outside of the quilt. Have you seen anything like that before??????

    It was adorable and could make it in one afternnoon.

    yes they are tied
    you take the quilt and cut strips four inches into the fabric where the borders would be all the way around the quilt sandwich. The cut the corners off. ( like four inch square) take the top fabric and the bottom fabric and tie them together and whala its done.

    I asked the same question when I did my first one.

    You cut the corners because you are fringing the blanket. If you cut a 5" square, your fringe will be 5" long and all 4 corners will line up evenly when you are done.

    Seriously, you're not tired, inquiring minds just want to know, and yes, you could, but then there would be a "fight" over which side you want the fringe to be on, the short side or the long side, and your blanket will have an uneven look.

    If you don't cut that corner off those extra strips would be floating in the breeze. they won't be part of the center of the quilt. Does that make sense. try it you see. you can always cut if off.
