    Thought of a brilliant Idea for Puffy Frame

    LOL, just something I thought I'd try instead of binding.

    I trimmed equally around topper and folded batting and backing in and under to make a stuffed "frame".

    I ended up with loose cloth on topper but pressing seemed to help most of it.

    btw, I think sewing the decorative stitch on the border, and then trying to do what I was trying to do didn't help much. lol! I also chose to make little leaf applique's for the corners.

    very cute quilt, I like the frame around the quilt makes it look like a picture frame around your fall scene. Great job!

    Thanks for saying it's cute! Now I'm trying to figure out how to temporarily hang it on a door. I tried double sided tape, and that didn't work. I might try duct tape.

    Ok, someone else thought of the same idea. She cut the batting off though. I left mine in for a puffy look.

    I like doing the padded edges on a quilt. Especially for kids, they seem to really like the extra texture.
