This fun quilt project by SewVeryEasy on YouTube is a great way to utilize your stash and use whatever fabric you already have available. This cute pattern not only looks very lovely and neat but is also pretty simple to make. You can even give this as a gift for baby showers, just about any occasion, or even none at all!
The first thing that you have to do is to cut out the panels or pictures from your fabric, then measure it, and cut the alternating fabric panels to the same size. In this project, her panels are measured at 6½ by 7½ inches. Now, get the fabric for the borders and cut them into 2½ inches wide strips, make sure to use alternate colors of borders for every panel. For the first 2 strips on each side of the panel, cut them to the same length as the panel’s side, and sew them together. Next, take the total size at the top and bottom including the added strips on each side, then cut the next border strips’ length to that size, and sew them together. Give the whole piece a nice press with the seam allowance going out.
Now, cut square fabrics at 4½ inches for the cornerstones, then place 4 of them on each corner of your patchwork with their right side facing down, and sew them from corner to corner or diagonally. Trim the outer side leaving only ¼ inch seam allowance, then open the fabric up, and give it a nice press. Do this process to the rest of the picture panels as well as the alternating panels. Once you’re done, sew them together in a row alternately, press every now and then, and sew the rows together, then press nicely. You can make 3 to 4 panels in a row and build about 3 to 4 rows. To finish your quilt, sew borders however wide or whatever design or pattern you like.
