|ELI'S WARM AND FUZZY QUILT|
As promised, here are the rest of the pictures of the process for making this quilt.
Part One of Eli's Warm and Fuzzy Quilt is HERE.
Make little quilt sandwich blocks with the back fabric face down, the quilt batting centered on top and..
Another fabric face up on top. I only used 2 coordinating fabrics and the back and front look the same. A solid color on the back would be nice. Using 2 fabrics made it very easy to keep everything straight for this grandma.
I chain stitched them and it went really quick. I didn't pin, or use a walking foot. I just held on to the fabric and headed across the square using the same hand position I use when free motion machine quilting. I stopped about half way across and smoothed everything out to make sure the edges were straight.
They look like this when you get the X sewn...
And then you end up with a stack like this... or
I did pin together the rows to make sure the seams matched up. A walking foot would have been helpful, but I got along ok without it. I just hate to stop and switch the feet!
All of your raw edges will be on top like this. I used a generous half inch seam allowance. Then came the hard part! Clipping all the seams was very hard. The only hard part about the quilt. I almost got blisters on my knuckles from using the scissors. But I kept on until I got all of the seams clipped and then I washed and dried it. I stopped the dryer frequently to remove the lint and threads from the lint thingie.
Now comes the fuzzy part!
The back is very smooth and neat. So the baby can use which ever side he likes the best. Either way its WARM AND FUZZY!
