How to Make a Quilt Top

Jan 27, 2011

Not everyone has the time to meticulously plan, cut, and sew tiny pieces of fabric together to get the wonderful look and feel that make quilts a favorite handmade treasure. Here, Judith Neukam demonstrates an easy, no-fail way to piece a quilt top without having to make all kinds of calculations or learn fancy quilting techniques. In this quilt, all of the blocks are made from one fabric. The way you cut the blocks determines how the fabric is rendered in each one; and you won’t really know how they’ll look until the quilt is cut and pieced together. That’s why it’s a surprise. This technique produces an easy yet great-looking quilt. But what really makes it fun is how the blocks just bloom before your eyes as the piecing comes together. You can unveil the potential in a single piece of fabric with mindful cutting. Learn how in this article from Quick Stuff to Sew, Vol. 4.
