To learn how to sew a quilt you will need:
2 kinds of coordinating or similar color material about 2 yards each
1 ½ yards material for backing
With a rotary cutter and ruler, cut your material into 7x7 inch
How to Use a Rotary Cutter
You can either leave them in squares or if you'd like to work with
triangles cut diagonally into triangles. Sew two different triangles
together to form a square. ~~See note below.
Now sew your squares together making a pattern.
Sew 7 squares together. Make 10 of these each with 7 squares in
With your rotary cutter, ruler and mat trim all rows so the edges
are even. (If your edges aren't even, your quilt won't go together
Now sew your rows together one after another until they are all
attached. With your rotary cutter again, trim sides even. Now, you
have the top of your quilt done.
Cut your backing material to the same size as your top, or leave an
inch overhang on your bottom material, as below. On a flat surface
lay your backing material out flat with right side facing down. Top
with batting and smooth flat. Top with your quilted top right side
up. Lay flat and pin several places along edges and through the
When done tying (or hand sewing), take out pins and turn edges in
and pin. Sew around edges taking pins out as you sew.
~~To make it easier for your easy sew quilt, I recommend
you start with squares instead of triangles. The finished quilt
is about 40x 60 inches. This quilt has 70 squares. 7 squares across
and 10 squares down.
