Honey Cooler Quilt Kit

This Honey Cooler quilt and pillow cases will be a gift for my step-daughter. It was a little tricky to make. It is extremely important to sew accurate quarter inch seams. I thought I was being careful but had to fudge several of my seams combining the rows of blocks. I backed the quilt in white and bound it with a flange binding so that I could stitch in the ditch on the right side. I used the scraps from the quilt to make matching pillow cases with red piping like the quilt binding. I always make pillow cases to go along with quilts I give as gifts. I used the method from the internet for making the pillow cases, which results in no fraying seams if you make French seams for the sides and top. I used wool batting, which I like for both a summer and winter quilt. Wool batting makes the quilt so much lighter weight than cotton batting.
