Heat N Bond Applique Rainbow Back to School Mini Quilt

Hi friends! Alicia here again from Sew What Alicia. I am counting down the days until my kids go back to school. I have so much respect for teachers and I love to start the year with a little gift for my kid’s teacher. This HeatnBond® appliqués rainbow back to school mini quilt is so cute and I always tell my kids to make good choices when I drop them at school. This quilt is a perfect reminder for all the kids to make good choices all day long at school!

Cut a piece of HeatnBond Fusible Fleece Interfacing the same size as the front of the mini quilt. Press the fleece to the quilt top to activate the fusible fleece and smooth the wrinkles from the top. To create the appliqué attach the Heat N Bond to a white fat quarter. Using your cutting machine of choice and a script font cut out your favorite quote.

Attach the appliqués to the front of the quilt. Use another of the fat quarters from the bundle to serve as the backing. Cut the backing so that it is 2″ wider than the front all the way around.

Quilt the mini using your quilting method of choice. For this one, we used a straight stitch down each color of the rainbow.

Now cut the backing down to 1″ on each side. Fold it towards the front 1/2″ and then fold it over again to create the binding. (See THIS POST for a more detailed explanation of this binding method.)
