How to make...a quilt for Juliette

February 02, 2011

  • Decide on pattern - I found mine in "Homespun" magazine
  • Select fabric six months before she is born to make sure it is ready for her when she arrives
  • Go to Patchwork on Central Park with colour theme in mind then let a key material choose you
This was the one that I based her quilt around (I love deers):

  • Choose lots of green fabric so husband won't mind how much you have spent
  • Purchase fabrics and following pattern, start cutting (use rotary cutter for precise cuts)
  • Iron all fabrics
  • Machine piece quilt top together, baste onto wadding and backing and tack evenly
  • Hand quilt with hoop from centre out around selected areas
  • Do a hundred projects in between....
  • Fast forward 13 months and complete hand quilting
  • Bind with bias binding or fabric cut on bias sewn into long panel (Go to Red Pepper Quilts for binding tutorial)

  • Hey presto, you have a cot sized quilt that is ready for the cooler months ahead!
