Sew with Me: Getting Started

By May 16, 2012Crafts, DIY Projects

A couple weeks ago, I told you about the Downy Touch of Comfort Program and how we will be sharing our Quilting Tips with you. If you haven’t already, you can send for a free quilt kit from Downy and Quilts for Kids.

The Quilt Kit that I received was a pattern with four-patch blocks, but we decided to share with you how to make a quilt with simple blocks.  Even if you are beginner, you can learn how to make a quilt and be able to put a smile on a child’s face in the hospital.

Let’s get started…

Here’s a run down of what you need…

The first steps…

  1. Lay out all the fabric and mark them with a piece of paper so you know where the pieces will go
  2. For the Block Quilt – you will need 6 1/2 inch squares {watch the video to see how to cut them}
  3. Sew together the blocks using a 1/4 inch seam allowance and press the seams toward the darker fabric

Stay tuned as we put together our quilt. I’ve created a Pinterest Quilting Boardwhere we can all share our quilts. I hope you will join me, learn a few sewing skills and spread a smile!!

Disclosure:  I am participating in the Downy Touch of Comfort Program, as always, the opinions are all my own.
