I want to show a simple baby quilt I made.
Stop this quilt used 6 different colors for the front and one for the edges and back. To make more easy to explain the process of cutting I will do with 5 colors.
- 1/4 yard of fabric for each color ( 5 colors)
- 1 1/2 yards of fabric to the edges and the back
- 1 package filling for quilts
Of each color you're going to cut
- 4 pieces 2 1/2 x 4
- 4 pieces 8 x 2 1/2
- 4 pieces 4 x 8
- 8 pieces of 2 1/2 x 2 1/2
Each square consists of one of each of the first 3 parts and two of the last piece. In total have 20 pictures.
In place where you have space, separates the pieces to form pictures as in the photo. Then change the center piece ( 2 1/2 x 4 ) with other colors.
Starts sewing. First sew the center piece with small squares.
Continuing with the other two pieces.
Repeat with each picture.
Put all your pictures on the floor and move them until you're happy with how they look. Notice the pattern that continued to guide my paintings. (right, down, left, above, right…) The pattern is repeated to the side and to low.
Start to sew your work row by row the first four frames from left to right, then the four tables, etc. After joining the first row 4 Tables and continues to the next row to form the rectangle.
From the fabric to the edges and back short strips 2 in. Sew it on the sides and then the top and bottom. You should look like as in the photo.
Now you're ready for quilting.
You have to make a kind of three-layer sandwich, fabric back ( looking down) the filling and the rectangle you just made. The fabric back and padding should be larger than your rectangle, so be sure that your rectangle to be well centred so that space to any error when things. It ensures everything with pins and start to sew. Here already all depends on what your favorite method of quilting. I do very simple. Foot use on my machine and of course normal stitch for quilting. COSO just beside each seam ( not in the center because then disappears, I like it look)As with all padding is always start in the middle of cooking to be.
When everything is short padded excess padding and fabric back. With the leftover fabric you're going to make the edge of the quilt. I found this video where he explains exactly how to do it.
I hope you enjoyed : )
