Free Quilting Patterns - Quilt in a Day

Free Quilting Patterns - Quilt in a Day

Kindly contributed by: Linda Maison
Here is a quickie quilting project for making a patchwork quilt.
Size: 16" x 102"

What you need: 3/4 yd. of 9 different fabrics; 5 3/4 yds. of fabric for backing; 10 yds. bias binding, 1" wide; scraps of synthetic 4 ply yarn; thread; puffy quilt batt.
What to do:
1. Wash and iron all fabrics.
2. Cut twelve 9" squares from each 3/4 yd. of fabric.
3. Lay the squares out on the floor to form a pleasing pattern. Make 12 horizontal rows of 9 blocks each.
4. Sew the blocks together with 1/4" seams. Press. Join the rows together. Press.
5. Cut the backing fabric in half crosswise. Remove the selvages. Join the two pieces together along one side with a 1/4" seam. Press.
6. Layer the quilt top (right side up), batting, and backing (right side down). Baste the three layers together.
7. To tie quilt, thread yarn needle with a double strand of yarn. Stitch through the corner of each block, tying a square knot on top of the quilt.
8. Trim batting and backing even with the top. Apply bias binding to the top of the quilt. Fold over to the back and blind-stitch in place with matching thread.
