Putting the quilt together.

My finished quilt for the Fall Into a Quilt Along is here.

(the pictures below is from last years quilt along, but I used all the exact same measurements)

You will need the following;

(8) 1 inch x 12.5 inch strips (back)

(8) 2 inch x 12.5 inch strips (front) (pressed in half)

(3) 1 inch x 36.5 inch strips (back)

(3) 2 inch x 36.5 inch strips (front) (pressed in half)

Your choice of binding.

My layout, has 3 blocks in a row, and 4 rows to make up the final quilt.

Step 1

Take (1) 2 x 12 inch strip and line it up on the front of a block.

Add (1) 1 x 12 inch strip to the back of the block.

Make sure they are line up nicely. You will have the top strip, the quilted block and the bottom strip all lined up. Now, sew a seam a 1/4 inch from the edge.

Step 2

Turn over your block. See the strip?

Press the back strip towards the seam. This will make it easier to sew the next block to it.

Step 3

Take the next block in the row, place it with the backside facing up, and the backside of the first block facing down. So they need to be back to back.

Place the back strip (from the first block) along the edge of the second block.

Make sure that they edges line up nicely.

And sew a 1/4 from the edge.

Step 4

Flip the second block over to also face up. Check how perfectly the edge fit snugly together. This will not create a ridge in the finished quilt, as there is no overlapping.

Press the top strip over to the second block. The top strip cover the seam allowance easily.

You can now, either hand sew this strip down, the same as binding, or you can machine sew a straight line down the edge. To make it look more even, you can repeat the line on both sides of the strip. Plus if you use a matching thread with the back, you will not notice the extra line on the back.

Step 5

Repeat, all the steps above, to finish the rest of the rows. And exactly the same way, to attach all the rows.

The finished quilt. Trimmed and squared.

The binding.

I cut my binding strips at 2 1/2 inch wide and pressed in half. Use any technique you prefer to bind your quilt. I like to machine bind my quilts, as most are for my family and they don’t mind.

Candy stripe binding.
