    I love the colors and the checkerboard effect. I'm with Moonpi...what makes it speedy and what do you do instead of binding. I couldn't tell from the picture. I do love the quilt a lot.

    Love it! Colors are fantastic (probably even better IRL, eh?). Strip piecing makes it fast, but what's the no binding secret??

    It's sewn right sides together with batting and turned right side out through an opening, and the opening is stitched closed I bet.

    Well, that's just about perfect. I love the colors--some of my favorites, but I especially love black in a quilt!!! It's just "right"!

    So, are you going to tell us how you did it????????

    Thanks for the comments and sorry for the delay in my reply.

    Yes, it is strip-pieced. 3 inch strips alternating black with anything. Then the strip set cut into 3 inch strips with every other one "flipped" to get the checkerboard effect.

    And you guessed the No binding technique also but I put my opening in the boarder of the quilt top, stitch-witch it down after turning, and then do a decorative stitch over the entire boarder.

    It is machine quilted diagonally through each black square, 1/2 inch from the fake boarder, and the inside boarder.

    The whole project took 3 days.

    What a fun quilt! You picked the best colors and it sounds like just what a quick qift quilt should be...for yourself or for a special gift! Thanks so much for sharing!

    Happy Quilting,
    Sharon

    Thanks Mimi (and all). This project was done as a "breather". I wanted to do some repetetive brainless sewing and I needed a break from the king that was in the frame and another project that required high concentration.

    Also, I give away most of my quilts to friends and family, and of course, Project Linus. Last fall I made Hubby a Tony Stewart (NASCAR) recliner quilt, so this one was for me. :-)
