How To Sew A Patchwork Quilt

Good Morning!

Today I'd like to share with you my latest sewing project - - a quilt for my daughter!

It turned out really well and was fairly easy to sew together since we wanted a simple patchwork style.

She is really into the black and white color combo right now, so this is perfect.   

And when she tires of it I will sure to be able to find a spot to use it since it's got that classic look that I like.

I used a backing fabric of fleece to make the quilt nice and cozy, plus a cute accent fabric for the binding.

I think it looks really nice with the color of the walls, which truthfully, I wasn't sure what we were going to end up with.

Both my two youngest daughters share this room so coming up with a wall color they both liked was a difficult process.  Now we are in the process of adding some personality to the room that reflects each of them individually.  

Having added the built in bed a while back has allowed us to create a personal space for each of them and I really want to make their bedding something they love.

(you can check out my post about the built in beds here, if you'd like)  

My daughter is very happy with the result which of course makes me happy about it also.

I made a video tutorial if you like to watch it below . . . 

I forgot to mention in the video that I ended up using ten blocks to make one row and I sewed together a total of 18 rows to make a generous sized quilt to fit her twin bed.

Please keep in mind if you are planning to sew something similar - - if her bed would have been more of a traditional free standing bed instead of the bunk bed type that the built in is I would have probably added a few more blocks to each row to add some length for it to hang down farther on the sides.

Hope you all have a wonderful day,

and I'll see you soon,
