Lucy's Crab Shack Quilt
This quilt is a sample I made for a quilt-as-you-go class I taught at a local quilt shop. I think my favorite aspect of this method is that you can pair densely quilted blocks with a soft minky or flannel back and you have a wonderfully soft quilt!
I also chose to put it together with the sandwiching method rather than a traditional binding.
To finish a quilt this way, you simply cut the minky backing to the same size as the quilt top. Pin it right sides together, and sew it shut, just leaving a small opening to turn it right sides out. Top stitch all the way around the edge, about 3/8" in.
Then quilt in the ditch between your 12" blocks to secure the backing to the front. Voila! You've got a quilt with luscious textured quilting on the front, but on the back it's all soft and squishy with minimal quilting!
BTW, it's made with a jelly roll of Lucy's Crab Shack by Sweetwater. I made the blocks 12.5", and used about 2/3 of the jelly roll.
