How to Sew a Quilt

You will need:
9 bandannas
bias tape, 6-8 yards or 3 packages of matching color
quilt batting
4 yards fabric for backing

Arrange your bandannas in whatever pattern or colors you want in rows. Sew three bandannas together for the first row.

Continue with remaining making a total of three rows with three bandanna squares in each.

Now sew rows together by sewing the bottom of the first row to the top of the next row and follow with the third row until all three rows make a big square.

To prepare your backing you will need to cut two strips of your material and sew down the middle. This will make a large enough piece to be your backing. Lay backing flat on floor with right sides down.

Lay batting over the top of your backing. Lay top bandanna square over the top of your batting with right sides up. Smooth material flat, making sure material is not bumpy or lumpy underneath or on the top layer.

Safety pin edges of material together working out bumps and smoothing material as you go all along the edges. With yarn or embroidery thread tie quilt together.
