 past Michael Miller

Cut this fat quarter into (2) strips @ ii.25″ x 21″
And (12) four.5″ x 4.5″ squares.

Cut EACH of the remaining vii fatty quarters into (xvi) 4.5″ 10 four.5″ squares.

Arrange your 4.5″ ten 4.5″ patchwork squares into 12 rows of 10 pieces each, as shown.

Sew the patches into the rows of 10. I like to press all my seams open. But if you lot like your seams to nest, press seams in the odd rows to the correct, and press seams in the fifty-fifty rows to the left.

If you would like more data on pressing seams, please consult this tutorial from my Top 10 Tips for New Quilters series.

Sew together the rows together, pressing all seams down.

Layer your quilt top, batting and bankroll together. Quilt equally desired. I chose to quilt 1/iv″ away from all the seam lines using my walking foot. If you are looking for some other ideas of how to quilt this easy patchwork quilt, delight consult this tutorial from my Summit 10 Tips for New Quilters series.

Trim your quilt backing and batting fifty-fifty with your quilt top.

Using a miter join, your textile strips should measure approximately nineteen″ long. To prepare your binding strips, start with a striped textile strip, add an orange strip and so connect iii of the striped fabric strips together to make five in a row. Add the other orangish strip. Continue with the 4 remaining striped material strips.

The following diagram shows how to use the binding to your quilt, starting in the bottom right corner. The rectangle is the quilt, with the top and lesser edge being twoscore″ long and the sides measuring 48″. Each of the lines that intersect the rectangle are the joins between the binding strips, every nineteen″. I always brand a diagram to programme where my binding joins will finish upwards so they don’t land on a corner, messing up the mitered corners.

When you apply your binding to the quilt, measure upwardly 22″ from the lesser correct hand corner. Get-go with the unmarried striped material strip stop of your binding, and leaving an 8″ tail, begin to attach your binding. Go on to sew your binding on all the style effectually the quilt and connect the ends. Press bounden over to the other side of your quilt and stop attaching the binding past automobile or hand run up to finish.

A simple patchwork quilt is ever a pleasure to sit and sew. And makes a lovely baby shower gift!

For the backing, I rummaged through my stash and found this
Doe Eyed in Sky
from the
Moon Shine
collection by Tula Pink for Gratis Spirit, which blends perfectly with those fabrics from the front.

I wanted the quilting to stand up out, so I decided to use something to compliment that dark grey groundwork in the prints. The choice was Superior Threads’ So Fine! #50 #409 Smoke on top and in the bobbin.

This Easy Patchwork quilt was the 46th utilize of my 100 labels ordered from Ikaprint.

With the few remaining leftovers from making the Easy Patchwork quilt, I whipped upwards this fashionable table runner using my Bindingless Quilted Placemat Tutorial.

This runner measures approximately 12″ 10 36″ and was backed in Linen Mochi Dot in Turquoise. The quilting was performed with a walking pes along the long seam lines and then in a costless grade zig zag using a plain white Gütermann thread.

If you lot DO brand a quilt using this tutorial, I would love to meet it.
