sewing,fabric scraps,quilting
I have made several of these quilts. It's a great way to use up all those fabric scraps you have bagged up and don't know what to do with them. A lady friend taught me how to make these. Here's what you do, it's so easy.

  • Step 1

  • Step 2

    Cut out some squares (I used 5" but you can make them any size). Make a whole bunch.

  • Step 3

    Place 2 squares together RIGHT SIDES together, serge or zig zag three sides, leaving one side open.

  • Step 4

    Stuff very lightly with fiber fill (I used some old pillows I cut open, took out the stuffing and sprayed it with Febreeze).

  • Step 5

    Serge up the remaining end. Do as many as you like to get started.

  • Step 6

    When you get enough for a strip, lay one edge of one square on the edge of another square and zig zag it together. Take the next square and add to that one you just did. Do this until you get a strip as long as you want it. I measured mine on my bed.

  • Step 7

    Then start another strip. When you get that one done, just lay the two strips together, laying one on the edge of the other and zig zag all the way down. Do this until you get the size quilt you want.

    These quilts are lightweight and very warm. I didn't add a border but you can if you like.
    I hope you like this project and happy sewing!

Yes Edie I'm still around. No you don't have to turn them inside out just serge or zig zag around 3 sides then stuff the open end and serge it shut.Of course if you find a different way then go for it. Also be sure to stitch it good as they have a tendacy to work loose when washing.
They make great baby quilts too.I made some and put wide binding around the edges.
Thanks for the comment and good luck!

oh shoot, something caused it to post 3 times, and I can not remove it. Sorry. (I also just realized how old this tutorial is, hopefully the creator is still around)

step 3 says to put them right sides together and sew 3 sides, then step 4 says to stuff them lightly...

do we turn them inside out before stuffing?

cute idea by the way
