Patchwork quilts are enchanting to look at, to own and to create. One of the first craft projects many young girls learned to create in generations past was to make a patchwork quilt. Getting started is really simple and you will grow in your creative abilities each time you complete a quilting project.
Using a sewing machine, stitch together the squares in rows of five, with a seam allowance of about 1cm. Trim and notch corners and press seams flat. Stitch together the seven rows of squares, right sides facing, and press seams flat.
Cut the wadding the same size as the patchwork and then trim off 1.5cm from all edges of the wadding. Fold the edges of the patchwork over the wadding all round and tack in place.
Cut the backing fabric to the same finished size as the patchwork and pin to the back, sandwiching the wadding between the two layers. Turn the edges of the lining fabric to the inside approximately 2cm and pin in place. Handstitch around the quilt using whipstitch.
