What advice would you give someone starting this project?
it is easy and a great way to quilt as you go.
This is awesome!
This was quilt as you go. cut 8 inch squares of backing material and 8 inch squares of batting. sandwich together. no pins needed. I used Bamboo batting. and cotton backing. Raid your scrap stash and cut lengths of fabric from 1 1/2 inches to 3 inches wide, it doesn't matter about the length. Place two pieces of fabric roughly in the centre of the square from one corner to another. that is diagonally across the square. sew down and use 1/4 inch seam. press open and lace the next piece of fabric down - keeping right sides together and do this to cover the square. when all the squares are finished, place on floor to get a good design for the colours. zig zag the squares together row by row, and sew on binding at the back and then the front. it is easier to sew all of the downward squares with the binding from and back. then add the next row. sew two rown together and make long pairs. then sew into four. at the end you only need to join two halves together as the quilt will get very heavy. this size is for a queen size bed.
Now this takes patience! Very beautiful - and I love the colours!
Very nice! I'm (coincidentally) also working on a scrap quilt.
This is beautiful! How long did it take you? Would you say it would be easy for a quilting beginner?
Excellent for beginners and it took about four weeks
