I promise I didn’t forget to share how to make this little quilt…I think it’s the only thing I didn’t forget last month! ;) My brain is fried from moving and spray painting and kid entertaining. Oiy.
I absolutely love how this quilt turned out. I quilted it with straight lines using a super soft minky on the back, and machine bound it using my favorite method.
You’ll need these white strips and print squares for the quilt center:
Lay out your squares and strips into rows, then sew the strips and squares together to make the 17 rows. Label these and be extra organized when you’re sewing these together…or else you might sew them backwards and have to unpick 7 rows before you realize…ahem.
A note about pressing: I pressed the seams of my rows in alternating directions…so my seams matched nice and neat and it went together easily!
Sew the rows together and press everything nice and flat.
Cut your border strips if you’re a border kind of person…and sew them on, sides first, then the top/bottom.
Press it and voilà! Now go dive into that scrap bin!
