Free Pattern

This pattern is great for using up an orphan block, a fabric that you don't want to cut up or a pillow sized panel.  It is quick, easy and can be done any size you want.  It would make a wonderful little Christmas themed table covering.

Read through instructions first.


Backing  in desired size of your project
Batting (Cut so it is 2 inches smaller in length and width than backing)
Note: Do not use polyester batting-Warm and Natural or similiar is best.
Panel for center
Strips of fabric in co-ordinating colours
Strips width 3 1/2".  If doing a project less than 36" square, use 2 1/2" strips.
Length of strips will vary from the size of center panel to width and length of the quilt. It may be necessary to piece some strips if your quilt is wider/longer than 40 inches.

Place backing right side down on table and center batting on top.
Center your panel on the batting.  Measure to be sure that it is centered.
Pin the panel to keep it in place.
Place your first strip on top edge of panel, face down.
Sew through all layers.
Trim ends with scissors and then open the strip and finger press.  Pin.
Add next strip to bottom of the panel, repeating the steps above.
Add strips to the right and left side, repeating steps for first strips.
Continue adding strips until you have covered your batting.
Note:  Check back of quilt after you complete each round to ensure you don't have any puckers.
When you have covered the batting, trim edges and sew on the binding.
