Welcome to Sweet Tea N' Salty Air! Happy Saturday to you. I decided to sew up a pretty strip quilt for a new little girl. The process is easy it's just first picking two pretty pieces of material and cutting equal amounts of blocks , even if you are not a pro sewer and just a beginner you could craft this quilt. You will need a pattern to run by simple enough some cardboard measured out and then its just tracing until you have your desired amount which would depend on the size this one is 3x4 ft. which is ideal for a newborn.
This would make a cute baby gift ! I know that the direction may not be exact but feel free to email me for further directions. Quilts are always a welcome gift and lend a great deal of warmth but many times they are just used for some pretty décor. Thanks so much for visiting today!
There you have it , all sewn together, don't worry if they don't match up completely that is the joy of a hand done quilt non perfection! After it is all sewn together time to cut a piece of lining quilt lining is sold at Walmart craft/sewing section or any material store. Now cut a piece of material about 5 inches bigger than the sewn quilt itself because you will be making an edge with it.
Sew the big cut of material and quilt lining together with the back side down and leave enough opening so you can turn it right side out. You will have to use common pins to do the edge and for the whole project if it makes it easier. The edge will be the overlap of the big piece of material so you just pin around the edge of the material tucking the raw edge up underneath and just sew the complete perimeter . You can take some colored embroidery thread and make some knots here and there for that vintage look.
