Hi! I'm new to crafster...
I took a craft class and made this quilt for my Grandma for Christmas (sort of backwards, I know, quilting for my Grandma, haha) and I thought I'd share!
It was really simple to make...Step 1:
I went to Fabricland and found the most random fabrics possible at $1/metre. I used 10 different patterns and purchased 2 metres of each (I'm pretty sure that's what it was...) for a total of 20 metres.Step 2:
Cut out my squares and sew each square to another of the same pattern so that the bad sides face in. I then arranged these double-sided squares in a pleasing pattern.Step 3:
I sewed all the squares together SEAMS OUT on the one side (the reverse of the quilt doesn't have the frayed edges).Step 4:
Finally, I made little cuts in the ugly outward seams and the edges of the quilt - about 1 cm apart each - then ran the whole thing through the wash. In the washer, the 1 cm cuts turn into frays that look really neat, and this way you don't have to be picky about your edges... great for a beginner like myself!
Questions and comments are appreciated! Thanks.
