How to add pop to a panel

1 focal panel + fussy-cut blocks + multiple borders = 
the Deep Sea Pals quilt by Heidi Pridemore!

"Deep Sea Pals" by Heidi Pridemore; featured in McCall's Quick Quilts Feb/March 2014

It's no secret that we love quick and easy kids' quilts, and McCall's Quick Quilts has a great one in the current issue. Heidi's Under the Sea prints shine in this ocean-themed quilt that little ones will love, complete with blocks reminiscent of submarine portholes. 

How do you add pizzazz to a panel? Borders! Heidi mixed simple strip borders with a wide pieced border to make this cheery quilt.

The look of applique without the work: Fussy-cut squares from this Under the Sea print create easy blocks full of favorite ocean-swimming friends.
