A simple, quick and easy patchwork quilt in a day -
albeit a small one - 36" x 36" when finished.
An ideal project for when time is in short supply.
I've just made two for 'new baby' gifts!
|First sew the strips together lengthwise.|
|Cut across the pieced strips to make 4 and a half inch strips of squares.|
|Turn the strips to alternate the fabrics then sew strips together taking care to match the corners neatly.|
|Layer up with batting and a backing fabric then quilt it!|
I've used my longarm for the stitching but as it's only a small quilt it's easy enough to do on a domestic sewing machine. Or of course by hand if you're not in a rush!
|I've chosen one of my all-time favourite edge to edge small scale panto patterns - 'Peacock Meander'. Its flowing curves contrast beautifully with the angles of the pieced squares.|
|And a Thomas update!|
