All the squares were cut from vintage pillowcases. I'm still afraid of doing a binding so I just enveloped this. It's a summer quilt so in place of batting I used a layer of flannel. I love, love, love this quilt & am feeling quite sad that I'm selling it rather than keeping it. It would go perfectly with my girls' room & would be such a nice 'on the go' blanket, since it's not real bulky.
