Here is a quick way to make almost anything quilted from placemats to quilts or purses to jackets. The great thing about this technique "Stitch 'n' flip" is you have no quilting to worry about at the end and you can use any scraps of fabric you have on hand. I prefer fabrics that go together, (but you can use any at all) my preference being a two color combination. To read more about colors, check out this blog post by Jen: Complimentary Colors
Today I have been playing around with foundation piecing, otherwise known as paper piecing. One of the reasons quilters love foundation piecing is because when done correctly, the blocks come out perfectly every time with all points matching evenly. Every quilter wants that!
