    i threw this together using the blocks left over from The FWIP Named Ralph.

    i used cotton fabric to back it so he qualifies as a Downy Quilt for Kids.

    Great quilt-love the colors. I really like the scallopped (sp?) borders; are they hard to do? That's another thing on my list of things to try.

    thanks, all, for your kinds words. :-)

    i used a wavy ruler to make the borders. i didn't use binding. i cut two layers of each border and turned it right-sides out after sewing around the edges. on the back i just turned under the straight edges and basted them down. when i deco-stitched the top, it fastened the back of the border at the same time.

    Nice quilt...interesting technique. Can you show a close up of the border/edge area so we can see what it looks like?

    Ralphie Jr. is looking good! Love how you did the scalloped border. Aren't you clever? Gotta try that!

    Yes, quite a bit. Thanks for posting. That's an interesting technique!! Have you made a tute for it here on the board? I think a lot of people would find that incredibly useful!! So many people hate the binding part (not me, I love it, but I'm weird!!) and this seems like a great alternative.

    Thanks, Patrice-that helps. I was afraid to try it with binding. This looks great, and now I'm anxious to try it on a baby quilt I'm doing.
    Thanks!!

    you should know, Marcia ... i used the purple and orange in your honor. :mrgreen: :lol: :XD: :XD:

    i'm sure i'll use this type of border again. when i do, i'll take some step-by-steps for a tute.

    What a great design of bright colors to brighten a child's world! I also like your scalloped border/binding.
