Baby girl quilt top : size 47 inches / 34 inches.
For this project I selected 7 different fabrics.
Fold your fabrics in two and cut bands of 7 inches width.
Put 4 bands over each other and cut squares of 7/7 inches.
With each pair, put both fabrics right side against right side, and sew all along the 4 sides.
|Pair of squares sewn all around.|
Cut the 2 diagonals and you obtain 4 double triangle squares.
Open and press hot, WITHOUT moving the iron, in order not to stretch
the fabric, as you will now assemble your blocks along the bias sides.
If you like you can spray starch to stabilize your fabrics.
I didn't and had no problem, as I was careful with the ironing.
Trim the corners.
Assemble as shown.
Always open and press hot after each sewing.
I chose to assemble my work by squares rather than by rows,
to avoid stretching the fabric by sewing long rows together.
Go on assembling the rest of your blocks as shown.
Enjoy your sewing!
