GmaFoley’s Cheater Quilts


I love making designs with my quilts, but I don’t like to hand stitch the quilting or fight with the batting.  One of my friends gave me this idea and I call them “Cheater Quilts.”  Basically, I machine sew the tops of the quilts using different patterns I like. Then instead of batting or a backing  I use polar fleece for both.  In place of the quilting, I finish them with little knots tied in strategic places across the quilt to hold both sides together.  Here are some of my finished projects.

These two quilt patterns are similar, both are made up from a 3 strips block. This first uses 9 inch squares and the other 6 inch squares. Once all the blocks are made, I assemble them into patterns and sew them together.
