  • How to make a patchwork quilt. Spin Me Round Quilt Pattern - Step 1
    Step 1

    SEWING INSTRUCTIONS:
    For the Quilt Top:
    1. Divide your 14 strips into two groups of 7. To achieve
    the look of our quilt, we divided the strips by
    colorway, so all the "reds" would be in one group
    and all the "blues" would be in the other, with the
    "grays" sprinkled in between. Stitch the 7 strips from
    one grouping together along the 40" sides to create
    a 28" x 40" rectangle. Press seams to one side.
    Lay a rectangle of 7 strips face up on your work
    surface. Measure 6" down from the TOP RIGHT
    corner and mark. Measure 6" up from the BOTTOM
    LEFT corner and mark. Draw a diagonal line
    connecting each of these marks, fig. 1. Cut along
    this line, dividing your grouping into two, then
    repeat for the remaining 7 strips of fabric, fig. 2.

    At each corner, with the cutoff 6" edge, mark the 90 degree right angle using a ruler, fig. 3.

    Referring to fig. 4, place the 11.5" square over the right angle of a triangle, right sides together. Pin
    along the edge with no seams.
    Stitch along the pinned edge ONLY with a 1/4" seam allowance and stopping about 1" from the end of
    the square, fig. 5.

    Align the right angle of another triangle piece with
    the unstitched edge of the 11.5" square and pin
    along the side with no seams. Stitch with a 1/4"
    seam allowance, stopping about 1" from the end of
    the square, fig. 6.

    Press the seam away
    from the center square.
    Go back and pin the
    rest of this edge to the
    first edge, lining up the
    tip of the point with the
    mark you made in step
    2, fig. 7. Stitch with a
    1/4" seam allowance
    and press seam away
    from the center square.
    Continue this process,
    working your way
    around the square until
    you close up all edges.

    To square up your quilt top, trim off all triangles you marked on Step 2 from the four corners of your
    quilt, fig. 8.

    For the Backing:
    Stitch the fabric #2 pieces, right sides
    together along a short edge. Press
    seam open. Cut the fabric #1 piece
    offset, parallel to the 54" edge. We
    divided ours to get a 12" piece and a
    32" piece. Stitch the fabric #2 strip in
    between these fabric #1 pieces and
    press seams open, fig. 9. Layer a
    good quality cotton batting in between
    your top and backing and quilt as
    desired. We quilted ours using a 1" x 1"
    Cathedral Windows pattern to echo the
    design on the center fabric.
    For the Binding:
    To bind your quilt, join the 5 binding
    strips at the ends to make a continuous
    strip. Bind your quilt as desired.
