Quilt Tree

We have numerous of these quilts made by my mother and she used flannel, which can make the quilt very soft. Flannel is a good option since you need to have to choose fabrics that will ravel and fray. This venture is really straightforward (if you can sew a straight line and have patience) and could make a wonderful little one/little one present if created with Disney Flannel.

No batting is required if you use flannel due to the fact the flannel thickness is ample to give your rag quilt a
sizeable come to feel. You may possibly use batting to make your quilt thicker, and these guidelines will explain equally with and without batting. You can also use a lot more flannel as a filler if you want to, but this is optional.
There will be two levels for this quilt: prime (frayed facet) and a base. Lower Squares for the top and the base the exact same sizes. 8" to 10" is about appropriate for a huge quilt but you can make them larger if you want to simplify or make them scaled-down if you are up for a lot more detail or are making a scaled-down quilt.

Establish the sum of content and squares you will need: If the quilt dimension you would like is 64", you will want eight 8"squares on a aspect, times eight rows or sixty four squares. These squares will be 10" by 10" to allow for the ragging, so you will need to have a overall yardage of about five sq yards for the front and 5 sq yards for the back again. For a baby dimension quilt (36") you will require about 1 one/two yards for the entrance and 1 1/two yards for the back (assuming 36" cloth width). For a child or child size quilt you will most likely like to use more compact squares. You could use a 9x9 sample with four inch squares (6" cut square size) or a 6x6 pattern (with 8" cut sq. dimensions). Experiment with sq. measurements to get the look you like. This is a excellent opportunity to use Fat quarters for a variety of patterns.

Reduce 64 squares, each and every 10" square of your leading and bottom fabrics. Use a variety of flannels combining different designs and solids. Lay out the squares (on a flooring will do) to see the overall effect and to establish how you will want to sew the sample blocks together.

If you choose you want to use batting as a filler, minimize the squares of batting 2 inches scaled-down than the top and base squares. If your quilt has ten inch leading and bottom squares, you would cut the batting at 8" or less. You will require to quilt the squares prior to you sign up for them into the quilt. Create a sandwich with your best sq., batting and base sq., then sew an "X" by way of the sandwich prior to signing up for them collectively. You do not need to have to do this step if you are employing flannel. Preserve the appropriate sides out (on both the best and base).
