I love how easy and fun this quilt was to make. I used Riane Elise’s Companion pattern from her book Inheritance to make this quilt.

The simplicity and contrast of this throw quilt are amazing to see.

What I love about this throw quilt is that there is no binding. Yes, you can make a quilt without binding, and it still looks great. I got the idea from The Willow Market.

To achieve this, you just sandwich the pieces right sides together and sew them together, leaving a six-inch hole for turning.

Once you turn the quilt inside out, it’s time to quilt it. Draw lines on the top of the quilt, 4 inches apart. Then follow them while stitching.

Once you stitch all of the lines, your quilt is done.
